On the latest Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons and Danny McBride talked about a range of topics, including Eastbound & Down and McBride’s latest project, Vice Principals. In this bonus clip, McBride reveals how the new HBO comedy was originally written as a 90-minute movie 10 years ago, but he and cocreator Jody Hill pivoted when they felt that they needed more time to let the story unfold. As a result, McBride says the show will be able to jump around and keep the audience guessing.
