That sounds like it will be terrible

This sounds like they are making a documentary about Warner Brothers.

So I guess Avenue 5 is never coming back.  That one took me a couple of episodes to warm up to, but it was wickedly funny.

So, not about superheroes, but superhero movie making?

Yeah, this is gonna kinda be a wankfest for film students who want to KEEP making movies about people talking over tables and thinking 'this is gonna be High Art.'

I love how Hollywood producers think THE best ideas are movies and TV shows that mock other movies and TV shows.  "Creativity doesn't sell, kid."

I'm willing to give anything involving Iannucci a chance.

Yeah, that's all he's ever made. Absolutely.

could be fun, but sounds more like Studio 60. "Let's make a drama out of a comedy sketch show."

He should have Alicia Vikander as his main actress, and have her doing the franchise film she complains about in Irma Vep.  The meta-metaverse would implode.

"follows a hopeful crew trapped inside the dysfunctional, nonsensical, joyous hellscape of franchise superhero movie-making. If and when they finally make the day, the question they must face-is this Hollywood's new dawn or cinema's last stand? Is this a dream factory or a chemical plant?"

The logline is terrible.  But Iannucci has a solid track record, so I'll give it a shot.

Already precedent for Malcolm Tucker to show up in a comic book property

Good point. It also isn't a new idea. the Mary Tyler More show, the Dick Van Dyke show, News Radio, Silicon Valley, etc, etc, etc

This will be an undeserved hit with critics and with industry types and won't be renewed. That is, if it makes it to air.
