Veep Premieres in April on HBO

OMG.  SO excited.  Not only do I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but I love the director of this new series, Armando Iannucci.

From HuffPo:

In “Veep,” Louis-Dreyfus plays former Senator Selina Meyer, the new vice president of the United States. Her character quickly learns the job isn’t exactly what she thought it would be.

The show also stars Sufe Bradshaw (“Overnight”), Anna Chlumsky (“My Girl”), Tony Hale (“Arrested Development”), Reid Scott (“My Boys”), Tim Simons (“Days Together”) and Matt Walsh (“Outsourced”).

Iannucci was the co-writer and director of In the Loop, one of my favorite films and a great piece of political satire, and he wrote and directed The Thick of It, a fantastic tv show satirizing British politics.

In the Loop:

 

The Thick of It:

Iannucci is a genius.
