"Danny McBride and Jody Hill have created a smart, rowdy and unpredictable style of comedy that we can't get enough of," Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, said in a statement. "The idea of them setting their minds on high school was irresistible."

The premiere date for the project, which has an18-episode order, has yet to be announced.
