Veep Season Finale Preview: Episode 8 - Tears
HBO's Veep is heading towards its first season finale and Vice President Selina Meyer's approval ratings have never been lower. The show itself is doing just fine, having developed a steady following and earning a second season, but after "Full Disclosure," Julia Louis Dreyfus' character could certainly use a break. Will the Vice President finally catch one in the episode titled, uh, "Tears?" It doesn't sound promising.
Veep Preview: Episode 7 - Full Disclosure
Veep is one of the best new comedies this season. Armando Iannucci's first foray into American television is a delightful political satire with super sharp writing and even sharper performances. Now six shows deep, the hilarious comedy is only getting better and this week's "Full Disclosure" was directed by Chris Morris, the man behind Four Lions. If that doesn't get you excited for the second last episode of the first season, here's a preview.
Veep Preview: Episode 6 - Baseball And An Obesity PSA
There are only three episodes remaining in the first season of HBO's Veep. From Academy Award nominated writer-director Armando Iannucci, the series is easily one of the most entertaining and funny new comedies of the year. Sure, the year is still young but it's that kind of creative spin that one needs if you're going to work in politics or political satire. After being handed the 'fat straw,' the Veep is doing her best to put the loss of her legacy behind her and get movin' on obesity.
Veep Preview: Episode 5 - Nicknames
HBO's Veep is really starting to hit its stride and judging by the title of this week's show, "Nicknames," the political incorrectness continues as probably more than a few of the 'sincerest forms of flattery' are sure to be not just unflattering but probably full on inappropriate. The best in the first four shows was probably Catherine calling Jonah a 'rapist face,' so we can only hope for more of the same. Here's a brief look at Sunday's Episode 5.
Veep Preview: Episode 4 - Chung
Veep is the perfect palette cleanser for the middle of the Sunday night line-up on HBO. After the heavy drama on Game of Thrones it's nice to have a half hour to let all the tension shake from your shoulders while laughing at the new political comedy. And together, the pair serve as perfect lead in for Lena Dunham's Girls. HBO has already released previews for next Sunday, including one for Veep's fourth episode titled "Chung."
Veep Preview: Episode 3 - Catherine
Even though HBO's Veep isn't as expressly about 'women' as it's lead-in Girls, it seems like the third episode of Iannucci's political satire will be dedicated to bringing women's issues to the forefront. Well, one particular women's issue anyway, the more than troubling relationship between mothers and daughters. IAnd much to our Veep's dismay, it doesn't appear as though her daughter cares much for the political spotlight. Or any spotlight. Here's a look at "Catherine."
HBO Renews Girls And Veep For Second Seasons
Let's hear it for the girls (and veeps)! While only a handful of episodes have aired between them, HBO is apparently confident enough in the potential of both Veep and Girls that the premium cable network has decided to move forward on both series, renewing them for second seasons.
Veep Preview: Episode 2 - Frozen Yoghurt
The last of three consecutive Sunday night premieres on HBO, Veep's first episode aired last weekend and even though it didn't create the buzz of a Game of Thrones or the controversy of Girls, the new show from acclaimed writer and director Armando Iannucci had a solid start. And that's in terms of both ratings and quality. On that note, following the pilot "Fundraiser" comes "Frozen Yoghurt." Take a look at Episode 2.
HBO's Veep Premieres To Decent Ratings, Game Of Thrones And Girls Hold Steady
Let's hear it for the girls! While HBO's Sunday night line-up isn't entirely female skewed, between the premiere of Veep, the return of Girls for its second episode, and some of the events that transpired during Sunday night's Game of Thrones episode, including what might have been the weirdest, creepiest birth since Bella and Edward's little one was welcomed into the world, women were most certainly showcased on the pay-cable network this weekend. The ratings are in, and it doesn't look like HBO has any reason to complain.
Veep Episode 1: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Stars In HBO's New Comedy
Being the vice president of the United States of America is tricky business, and based on HBO's Veep, it can also be funny business. HBO premiered the first episode of the comedy series, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer. If you didn't catch the episode, we have it here for you to check out in its entirety.
HBO To Make Girls And Veep Premiere Episodes Available To Non-Subscribers
While Starz and Showtime have, on occasion, offered early previews of their new and returning series online to subscribers and non-subscribers alike, HBO is offering a similar opportunity for people interested in checking out the series premieres of Veep and Girls. The pay-cable channel will make both episodes available to view online, but not their official premieres.
13-Minute Making Of Veep Featurette Goes Behind The Scenes Of HBO's New Comedy
Veep will be the third big premiere for HBO this month. Game of Thrones kicked off its second season just two weeks past with Lena Dunham's new series Girls debuting this Sunday and, not to sound crazy, when all is said and done Armando Iannucci's comedy may prove the most entertaining. Watch the 13 minute 'Making Of' featurette.
Veep Preview: Second Trailer For HBO's Comedy Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus
One of the most exciting upcoming comedies is HBO's Veep. The new series from Armando Iannucci stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the Vice President of the United States and explores the ineffectuality of that office. She may be the second most powerful person in the world but as long as the number one is around, well, it doesn't look like she has much to do. She still has a full team of staffers to cater to her every whim though, and the ensemble put together for the project, not to mention the sharp writing, makes Veep look like a must-see. Here's the second trailer.
Veep Preview: Meet The Characters Of HBO's New Political Comedy
One of the most difficult aspects of crafting a pilot is handling the introduction of the characters. While you have to give us enough to invest in your cast quickly, there's a danger of getting wrapped up in exposition and losing any sense of actually telling an engaging or funny story. This problem becomes exponentially harder when your show has a large ensemble, like HBO's new comedy Veep which is set in the second highest political office. Don't worry, here's a chance to meet the characters before the pilot.
