Forget vying for the Iron Throne; high school principal is the hot position on HBO this summer.

The new trailer for HBO’s upcoming dark comedy series Vice Principals opens with Bill Murray, as the man vacating the top spot, telling the high school’s two vice principals Neal Gamby (Danny McBride) and Lee Russell (Walton Googins), “Just remember one thing: it’s all about the students. It’s not about you two.”

For the sake of comedy this is, thankfully, not a sentiment the budding principals take to heart. Confused looks soon become sabotage tactics as the battle for the school’s top spot commences. Crazy antics include a stampede of rams, dirt biking, bow ties, and creepy masks.

Watch the trailer above to see how far these two will go to secure the coveted position.

Vice Principals premieres on July 17 at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO. As Gamby points out, “It’s definitely going to be dope, super dope.”
