The new HBO comedy Veep, about a woman who becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about, was hailed as "hysterical" (TV Guide) and "sophisticated" (People Magazine).
Created by Armando Iannucci (Academy Award® nominee for co-writing In the Loop), the series was nominated for three 2012 Emmy® Awards winning one for its star Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series). "Veep: The Complete First Season," releases on Blu-ray with HBO Select* ($49.99), DVD ($39.98) and Digital Download on March 26, 2013.
Former senator Selina Meyer was a rising star in her party, a charismatic leader who seemed to have unlimited potential. Some pundits thought she might even occupy the White House someday. Then she became vice president. 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 of the show also includes Tony Hale (Arrested Development) as Gary, Meyer's right-hand man; Anna Chlumsky (In the Loop) as Amy, her chief of staff; Matt Walsh (Hung) as Mike, her weathered spokesperson; Reid Scott (My Boys) as Dan, an ambitious political aide; Timothy C. Simons (Days Together) as Jonah, a young and somewhat clueless White House liaison; and Sufe Bradshaw (Overnight) as Sue, her executive assistant. In addition to Armando Iannucci, directors include Chris Morris and Tristram Shapeero; other writers besides Iannucci include Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche, Sean Gray, William Smith, Roger Drew and Ian Martin.
