Description

Veep is an American satirical comedy television series created by Armando Iannucci and inspired by his BBC series The Thick of It and his film In the Loop which is set in the office of Selina Meyer, a fictional Vice President of the United States who is a former senator and one-time presidential candidate who often feels powerless, disregarded and discontent in her position as second in command.

Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about.

Veep follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington.

The series documents the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Meyer 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.

Meyer's inner circle includes: her chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), longtime press spokesperson Mike McClintock (Matt Walsh), right hand and body man Gary (Tony Hale) and secretary Sue (Sufe Bradshaw), all of whom often do battle with Dan Egan (Reid Scott) - an ambitious interloper - and smug White House liaison Jonah (Tim Simons).

Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style. Veep is authentic without being specifically biographical about what it is like to hold the least effectual post in the most powerful office in the world.

Executive Producers are Armando Iannucci, Chris Godsick and Frank Rich. Co-Executive Producers are Simon Blackwell and Tony Roche with  Producers Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Stephanie Laing.

Directors are Iannucci, Tristram Shapeero and Chris Morris and writers include Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Sean Gray, Ian Martin, Will Smith, Tony Roche and Roger Drew.
