HBO Picks Up Julia Louis Dreyfus Comedy

HBO Picks Up Julia Louis Dreyfus Comedy

Just buy HBO from your cable provider already. Over the weekend, the network picked up the Armando Iannucci pilot Veep with a series order. If you're wondering why that should get you excited, consider this: Iannucci wrote and directed In the Loop the hilariously foul-mouthed political satire that came out in 2009.

Veep stars Julia Louis Dreyfus as a former senator who loses her innocence upon taking office as vice president. Tony Hale (Arrested Development) and Anna Chlumsky (the girl from My Girl) co-star in what will likely be a funny and subversive political comedy, the likes of which hasn't been seen since... well, In the Loop.
