Former Senator Selina Meyer was a charismatic leader and rising star in her party with her eye on the White House...then she became Vice President. Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld) stars in VEEP, the new HBO comedy series created by Oscar nominee Armando Iannucci (In the Loop). VEEP follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Meyer as she puts out political fires, juggles a busy public schedule and demanding private life, and defends the president's interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. The ensemble cast also stars Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Anna Chlumsky (In the Loop), Matt Walsh (Hung), Reid Scott (My Boys), Timothy Simons (Days Together) and Sufe Bradshaw (Overnight).
