Armando Iannucci and Nikki Amuka-Bird on poop, space, and a well-stocked library

As a creator, Armando Iannucci has a long list of successful ventures under his belt, and with Avenue 5, he seeks to add another. The A.V. Club sat down with Iannucci and Avenue 5 star Nikki Amuka-Bird to talk about how the creator dipped into his well of players to cast the show, and what sort of space survival skills the two could whip up in the event that they were trapped amongst the masses in some floating interstellar cruise ship hell.

Marah Eakin has been an editor at The A.V. Club for over 11 years. She covers everything from RuPaul's Drag Race to Marvel to children's books. She is a one-time Jeopardy! champion.
