In this election year, it’s important to take a step back and realize that America’s political process is beyond silly and that most politicians are bizarre, insecure little people.
HBO’s latest comedy, VEEP starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, has a whole lot of potential. Brought to us by Armando Iannucci (THE THICK OF IT, IN THE LOOP) with an all-star cast, the series revolves around the thankless job of the Vice President of the United States. It ain’t easy being second in command.
This new trailer for the series definitely gives off a typical Iannucci vibe, with cursing characters bickering with each other and a documentary feel behind the camera. They even brought in Anna Chlumsky who worked with Iannucci on IN THE LOOP. Other co-stars include Tony Hale, Matt Walsh and Reid Scott.
HBO has faith in the series, they’ve ordered a full season. The first episode premieres April 22nd.
