HBO Sets Premiere Dates For Game Change And Veep

While HBO continues to dangle Game of Thrones’ second season before our faces with each trailer and behind-the-scenes featurette it airs, the premium cable network has yet to assign the series an official return date. We know the aim is for April, and a Sunday night is probably a safe bet, but which Sunday night? Still no answer. In the meantime, HBO has announced the dates for some of their other upcoming projects, one of which happens to premiere on a Sunday night in April.

The Hollywood Reporter shared the news today that the D.C. set comedy Veep, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the U.S. vice president will debut on HBO on Sunday, April 22nd at 10:00 p.m. Meanwhile, the TV movie about the 2008 presidential election, Game Change, which has Julianne Moore playing Sarah Palin, will premiere on Saturday, March 10th. As the reporter points out, these projects join Eastbound & Down and the U.S. airings of Ricky Gervais’ Life’s Too Short on HBO’s 2012 spring schedule.

While it would've been great to hear word of the GoT return date, it's fitting that Veep and Game Change's dates were announced together, given the political theme of both of them.

You can catch the amusing teaser for Veep here and the trailer for Game Change below...
