Season 5

President Selina Meyer is in the midst of a virtually unprecedented Electoral College tie, with her future as commander in chief coming down to just a few hundred votes.

While Amy and Dan work on a long shot to victory, Selina finds herself spinning her wheels in D.C., as her staff strives to make her seem presidential (even though she actually is president), at the same time fending off the ambitions of Tom James, her charismatic running mate, who in a twist of obscure constitutional procedure could end up becoming president.

The show stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as President Selina Meyer, for whom even the most banal action can set off a ripple effect that has unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

The ensemble cast of the show also includes Tony Hale as Gary, her devoted bodyman; Anna Chlumsky as Amy, her on-again, off-again right hand; Matt Walsh as Mike, her weathered spokesperson; Reid Scott as Dan, an ambitious aide; Timothy Simons as hanger-on Jonah; Sufe Bradshaw as Sue, President Meyer's wry executive assistant; Kevin Dunn as Ben, her chief of staff; Gary Cole as strategist Kent; and Sam Richardson as campaign worker Richard.

Recurring guest stars on the new season include John Slattery as billionaire banker Charlie Baird; Sarah Sutherland as Catherine, Selina's daughter; and Hugh Laurie as Tom James, Selina's running mate.

In the first episode of the fifth season:

On the night after the election, Selina discovers a possible road to victory. Meanwhile, Amy must figure out if she is back or not; Catherine kicks off a behind-the-scenes documentary project; Mike announces that he and Wendy (Kathy Najimy) are adopting a baby from China; and Dan considers a new career.

In the second episode, Amy, Dan, Jonah and Richard try to win the presidency for Selina. Back in D.C., Selina brings in respected Washington fixture Bob Bradley (Martin Mull), aka "The Eagle," and, after nudging out Tom James on the newly created banking task force, meets billionaire banker Charlie Baird.

Meanwhile, Mike tries to get healthy before his baby arrives; Kent investigates Sue's age; and Amy and Dan share a charged moment.

In Episode 3, Mike must deal with the consequences of Selina's tweet. Feeling usurped by Bob, Amy begins to be troubled by his behaviour. At a museum gala, Gary finds himself the belle of the ball.

Veep was created by Armando Iannucci; executive produced by David Mandel, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Frank Rich, Chris Godsick, Lew Morton.
