New HBO show to film in Charleston

A new HBO comedy starring Danny McBride is set to film later this year in Charleston, according to officials.

HBO spokesman Diego Aldana confirmed Thursday night via email that "Vice Principals" - the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals - will film in Charleston, although it was unknown exactly when or where.

The show, created by McBride and Jody Hill, who also did "Eastbound and Down," is slated for 18 episodes, with the debut date and number of episodes per season to be announced.

Production of the series was announced in May.
