After her brilliant antics as Elaine Benes in cult TV smash 'Seinfeld', Julia Louis-Dreyfus is about to wow again - and have us LOLing loads - in the new TV show, 'Veep.'
Take a look at a preview:
The show premieres in Australia on Sunday June 24, 2012, at 7.30pm and will screen as double episodes over four weeks.
Here is how the show is described:
"The new HBO comedy series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as former senator Selina Meyer, who becomes Vice President of the United States and finds the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about.
Former senator Selina Meyer was a rising star in her party, a charismatic leader with White House potential. Then she became Vice President. Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Emmy® winner for Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine) stars in Veep, a new HBO comedy series created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar® nominee for co-writing In the Loop) that follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of the Vice President 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.
Over eight half hour episodes, Veep hilariously skewers and satirises both the nuances of everyday office politics and the political world in an environment where even the most banal decision – from a yogurt flavour to choice of the VP pet – can have unexpected and far-reaching consequences."
Absolutely sign me up.
