  • Danny McBride made his debut as Vice Principal Neal Gamby last night
Alright y’all, so last night Vice Principals debuted on HBO. Now, as you may have heard, the new series starring Danny McBride was filmed right here in the Lowcountry. So we decided to start a running list of all the places they filmed.

First off, Stall High School is front and center as the main stage for the show. The episode opens with stars McBride as Neal Gamby and Walton Goggins as Lee Russell raising the flag with their soon-to-be retired Principal Wales played by Charleston’s most famous resident, Bill Murray.

After a few different scenes around the high school, we’re brought to live oaks and stables to watch Gamby’s daughter ride horses over at Middleton Equestrian Center.

Gamby then heads home to a neighborhood off Dorchester Road, and we discovered that badass truck is not a prop. If you go to Google Street View, you can check that bad boy nestled in right where it is in the show. What a beauty.

Daniel Island is the next lowcountry scene as Gamby picks up a student to give him a good talking to. They cruise down Seven Farms Drive and drive past Daniel Island shops as the Volvo Car Stadium can be made out in the background. 

That’s all we noticed this week, but stay tuned to see what else we catch as we watch each week's episode.
