It takes what?

by senior contributor Brendan Kownacki

We were on site for the DC red carpet premiere of HBO's new political comedy VEEP to chat with cast and crew about Washington, politics and the show. 

The new series stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as former Senator Selina Meyer who has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. 

'Veep' follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington. Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style.
