Watch The Trailer For HBO Comedy VEEP
British satirist Armando Iannucci needs no introduction around these parts, the co-creator / writer / director of Steve Coogan's I'm Alan Partridge having served up some of the most scathingly hilarious polical comedy ever created with his UK set series The Thick Of It and the feature spin off In The Loop. And now he's coming to America to poke at the Yanks as well, with the backing of HBO.

Premiering April 22nd, Veep stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer: Vice President Of The United States.

Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. 'Veep' follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington.

Meyer's inner circle includes: her chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), longtime press spokesperson Mike McClintock (Matt Walsh), right hand and body man Gary (Tony Hale) and secretary Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) all of whom often do battle with Dan Egan (Reid Scott) an ambitious interloper and smug White House liaison Jonah (Tim Simons).

Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style. 'Veep' is authentic without being specifically biographical about what it is like to hold the least effectual post in the most powerful office in the world.
Iannucci's style is better experienced than explained and it looks to be in full effect here. Check the trailer below.
