Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Avenue 5, a new series starring Hugh Laurie, is coming to HBO in January.
The network shared a premiere date, Jan. 19, and poster for the comedy Monday on Twitter.
"New comedy series #Avenue5 debuts Sunday, Jan. 19 at 10PM on @HBO," the tweet reads.
"Taking luxury to a whole new space. Space," the poster reads.
Avenue 5 is created by Veep creator Armando Iannucci. The show takes place 40 years in the future and follows the crew and passengers of Avenue 5, a space cruise ship that encounters difficulties during a journey.
Avenue 5 also stars Rebecca Front and Ethan Phillips. Iannucci wrote the series and will executive produce with Kevin Loader, Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche and Will Smith.
HBO released a trailer for Avenue 5 on Sunday that shows Captain Clark (Laurie) and his crew dealing with challenges on board.
Laurie played Senator Tom James on Veep, which ended in May after a seven-season run on HBO. He is also known for portraying Dr. Gregory House on the Fox series House.
