Avenue 5 season 1
Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie), captain of the cruise spacecraft "Avenue 5", has seen everyone over the years of work in space tourism. But the passengers of this flight will get a single number, and state of emergency and scandals will be at every step. Passenger number one is the owner of the Avenue 5 ship, the owner of the hotel chain, fitness clubs and space tourism gurus, Herman Judd (Josh Gad). He made the first millions in the hotel business, and now believes that his every thought is gold, and everything that he does not undertake will make a profit. The only area in which he does not claim to be superior is science, therefore the solution of questions to which Judd does not know the answers has been kindly left to scientists.
