HBO Has Another Show That Sounds Really Good

April 18, 2011


A new political comedy from the brilliant writer/director of In the Loop and starring actors from two of the modern world's greatest sitcoms (plus, Girl from My Girl)? Alright, HBO, you got me. I will lie with that beast.

The network has confirmed that they've picked up The Thick of It creator Armando Iannucci's Veep--a new comedy that stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, and Anna Chlumsky--for series. Louis-Dreyfus plays the title role, a former senator who wins the vice-presidency only to learn that the job isn't all she thought it would be. Given Iannucci's prior efforts, that probably means way more whip-smart, oft-angry dialogue than she, or anyone, could have anticipated. Biden just makes everything seem so cool, you know?
