In each episode Vice President Selina Meyer asks, “Did the President call?” and with each question comes the same answer, “No.”
“Veep” on HBO gives viewers a comical insight of what it may be like to hold a role in politics and even show how little the “Veep” actually does.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Selina Meyer and she has not lost her impressive comedic timing that was so loved on “Seinfeld.”
Also featured on the program is “My Girl: protagonist, Anna Chlumsky and “Arrested Development’s” Tony Hale playing the awkward assistant, Gary.
This is not a show to multi-task while watching. Small jokes are placed strategically where you must be paying attention.
Creator of the show, Armando Iannucci, was inspired to create a political comedy show after working on BBC’s “The Thick of It.”
Each episode is a mere 30 minutes and doesn’t fully require keeping up with every episode, although you will want to and you will.
For the most part this show flies mostly under the radar, due to its premium station perhaps?
During awards season, “Veep” was nominated for a Golden Globe, a Writers Guild award, a Television Critics Award, Women’s Image Network award and the Primetime Emmys.
Louis-Dreyfus won the Primetime Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for portraying Madam Vice President Meyers.
The show carries the same powerful female protagonist like “30 Rock”, shares the handheld camera work of “The Office,” features the foul language from HBO’s “Girls” and the hilarity of “Parks and Recreation.”
To find out if the president ever will call tune in this April 14th for the season 2 premier on HBO, but season 1 episodes are available on HBO today.
