Veep: Spoilers for April Episodes

veep hboIn a matter of three weeks, we’ll have a new Vice President of the United States of America.

HBO’s Veep brings together Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus with Oscar nominee Armando Iannucci and follows the promotion of promising senator Selina Meyer to the second highest office in the land. Over the course of the first season of the show, we’ll be tagging along with Selina as she finds out what the VP actually does (and doesn’t) do and tries to keep her head above water in the increasingly hostile field of politics.

Below are the initial air dates, episode names, episode descriptions, and repeat dates for the first two episodes of Veep. The series is slated to have eight episodes in its first season.

Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her staff chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), spokesperson Mike (Matt Walsh), right-hand man Gary (Tony Hale), and executive assistant Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) are still finding their footing in Washington D.C. Selina decides to make the Clean Jobs Commission a pet project, but a series of missteps requires her staff to work damage control.
