Veep premières in the UK on Sky Atlantic

Jun 24, 2012

Veep, created by Armando Iannucci and  written and co-executive produced by Tony Roche, premières in the UK on Sky Atlantic at 10pm on 25th June. 

Veep follows Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), a US senator who becomes the Vice-President, as she negotiates the pitfalls and politics of being only a heartbeat away from the most powerful job in the free world. Veep reunites most of the writing team behind the award winning The Thick of It.

"slick and clever" The Telegraph

"Dreyfus gives a masterclass in comic timing, and the scripts are as drum-tight as you'd expect from these scribes"  Julia Raeside The Guardian
