A few years back, a little film entitled IN THE LOOP hit, made the film world fall all over themselves laughing, and became one of the most beloved films of 2009. Well, Armando Ianucci is back with a new television show this time (LOOP was after all based off of his TV series THE THICK OF IT), and it looks like he’s picking up right where he left off.

VEEP stars Julia Louis-Dreyfuss as the Vice President of the US, and is set to bow on HBO on April 22nd. Co-starring Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale and Matt Walsh, the show even sees the return of the large writing staff that made THE THICK
OF IT such a brilliant piece of television.

Overall, while the trailer is short, it definitely amps up the laughs, and looks to be one of the spring’s most interesting TV debuts. I love the cast and crew here, and think that this is just the type of comedy that HBO knows how to take, and run with. I can’t wait. What about you?
