Selina Meyer has had trouble getting a foothold during her time in the White House as Vice President. At one point, her goals consisted of getting POTUS to call and not making a fool of herself anywhere near a camera, so the current climate on Veep is much different than what she’s used to. The President is trusting her with more responsibilities and she might be on her way to political legitimacy, meaning that she’ll have a seat at the table for more than just the stereotypical Vice Presidential pet projects. Plus, she’ll get to make a real difference in Washington and perhaps even expand her network to include residents of other countries. Is this the turning point that the Veep has been looking for?
Listed below are the dates, times, titles, description, and rerun information for three upcoming episodes of Veep.
