Thankyou Sarah Palin?
HBO has announced a new comedy for Julia Louis-Dreyfus (The New Adventures of Old Christine, Seinfeld).
Called Veep, Louis-Dreyfus will play former Senator Selina Meyer, who becomes Vice President, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected.
Created by Armando Iannucci (In the Loop), Veep will also include Sufe Bradshaw as the Vice President’s assistant, Anna Chlumsky as her chief of staff, and Tony Hale as her right-hand man.
Louis-Dreyfus said, “It is a true delight to work with HBO and Armando Iannucci. I take the role of vice president very seriously, and although everyone says this is a comedy, I don’t think there is anything funny at all about me being a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
The series will debut in 2012.
