Avenue 5 is on the HBO channel as a space comedy, bringing a different interpretation to the subject of comedy, starring Hugh Lauire from the Veep series, and being produced by Armando Iannucci. Hugh Lauire, who we will watch in the role of Ryan Clark, appears as the captain of a space ship (Avenue 5) lost in space.
According to the statements by Armando Iannucci in different media, Avenue 5 will be about space tourism, which is still discussed today, referring to 2060 and later. He stated that he would try to get out of the classical and monotonous culture of humor in the space comedy series, which would deal with what kind of relationships people would have in space, or how they might differ from life in the world, rather than utopian or virtual subjects.
That is the Cast
If we come to the actors in the Avenue 5 series, Hugh Lauire as Ryan Clark and Suzy Nakamura as Iris Kimura are featured in the leading roles. Other actors are; Rebecca Front, who we know from The Thick Of It, Josh Gad as Herman Judd, whom we are familiar with from the Frozen series, Zach Woods from the Silicon Valley series, Ethan Phillips as Spike Martin, Lenora Crichlow as Billie McEvoy from the Deception series, Himesh Patel from the series Yesterday, and Nikki Amuka from the series Hard Sun. It will be Bird as Rav Mulcair. The series, where we will see famous names from time to time, will attract great attention with both its subject and cast. As is known, Armando Iannucci is a very award-winning producer. Oskar nominations have made him known for his many awards in different categories, and finally, the Veep series, a political satire comedy, and crowned it with three Emmy awards. The Avenue 5 series is also aired on HBO, such as the Game of Thrones series, which has become a popular and serious industry worldwide, and the award-winning series of Armando Iannucci, Veep.
In his journey based on space tourism, he promises us an unusual and surprising space comedy with a ship that will disappear in the depths of space and will encounter different problems and interesting stories of its crew. When we take a look at the comedy segment TV series on TV screens, we see that many of them are sitcoms that cannot go beyond the classical. Unfortunately, most of the comedy series that deal with family relations and relatives are removed from the broadcast before completing a season. In those days when internet series are becoming a favorite rather than TV series, Avenue 5 seems to break this rule with its rating rates. Thanks to the developing technology, people’s watching TV habits are also changing rapidly and the hours spent in front of TV due to the changing life conditions are decreasing at that rate. However, the audience of the series has also become extremely selective. In the face of this degeneration caused by the consumer society, Avenue 5 seems to achieve this in the series sector where it is very difficult to survive.
