The series, described as a sitcom about “a high school and the people that almost run it,” is from McBride and his Eastbound collaborator Jody Hill.

The series is slated for 18 episodes; debut date and number of episodes per season has yet to be determined.

McBride and Hill wrapped Eastbound, a cult comedy about a former pro baseball pitcher, late last year.

    Happy to hear this. Eastbound is NOT the type of show I normally watch but man did I love it. It’ll be hard not to see him as Kenny Powers though.

    Didn’t they try a sitcom on HBO with Lucky Louie (Louie CK’s show) and it was one season and canceled?

    This could be very funny!
