Veep Mega Post!

New Poster



When we last saw Vice President Selina Meyer on HBO's Veep, she had rebounded in popularity after crying during a TV interview, only to suffer backlash when it came out that the tears had been staged. (She wasn't in on it: Mike and Amy plotted behind her back.) Her office was in chaos, her staff continued to snipe at each other, and a lot of people said the f-word.

In other words, thank god Armando Iannucci's Veep will soon return to us, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won an Emmy in September for the role of Selina, leading the way. Not that Selina ever leads.



In each episode Vice President Selina Meyer asks, “Did the President call?” and with each question comes the same answer, “No.”

“Veep” on HBO gives viewers a comical insight of what it may be like to hold a role in politics and even show how little the “Veep” actually does.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Selina Meyer and she has not lost her impressive comedic timing that was so loved on “Seinfeld.”

Also featured on the program is “My Girl: protagonist, Anna Chlumsky and “Arrested Development’s” Tony Hale playing the awkward assistant, Gary.

This is not a show to multi-task while watching. Small jokes are placed strategically where you must be paying attention.

Creator of the show, Armando Iannucci, was inspired to create a political comedy show after working on BBC’s “The Thick of It.”

Each episode is a mere 30 minutes and doesn’t fully require keeping up with every episode, although you will want to and you will.

For the most part this show flies mostly under the radar, due to its premium station perhaps?

During awards season, “Veep” was nominated for a Golden Globe, a Writers Guild award, a Television Critics Award, Women’s Image Network award and the Primetime Emmys.

Louis-Dreyfus won the Primetime Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for portraying Madam Vice President Meyers.

The show carries the same powerful female protagonist like “30 Rock”, shares the handheld camera work of “The Office,” features the foul language from HBO’s “Girls” and the hilarity of “Parks and Recreation.”

To find out if the president ever will call tune in this April 14th for the season 2 premier on HBO, but season 1 episodes are available on HBO today.

Check out the new trailer for the second season on hbo.com/veep.


The "Veep" is back in office this April when Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns with Season 2 of her HBO comedy. It's a new year in the life of Vice President Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus) and things have changed.

"The big change we've made from Season 1 to Season 2 is that we see Selina get closer to power and closer to the president," creator and executive producer Armando Iannucci said in the video below.

Look for the vice president to take trips abroad, while at home viewers will learn more about her staff. New staff members, families, exes and significant others will be introduced. Find out more changes in the video below.

"Veep" Season 2 premieres Sunday, April 14 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
