VICE PRINCIPALS kicks off its nine-episode season Sunday, July 17 (10:30-11:00p.m.). Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who also created EASTBOUND & DOWN, this dark comedy series tells the story of a high school and the two people who almost run it, the vice principals. McBride and Walton Goggins star as the two administrators, who are in an epic power struggle, vying for the top spot: to be school principal.
