HBO premieres the third season of the Emmy(R)-nominated comedy series created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar(R) nominee for co-writing "In the Loop") that takes a sharp, satirical look at the insular world of Washington politics. Following the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her Emmy(R)-winning role), "Veep" hilariously skewers everyday office politics, against the backdrop of the second highest office in the land. After the revelation at the end of Season 2 that the president will not run for reelection, Season 3 begins with Selina, eying a promotion, courting Iowa caucus voters at a signing for her new book, "Some New Beginnings." Soon, Selina and her staff, back in D.C. for Mike's (Matt Walsh) wedding, learn that Secretary of Defense Maddox is resigning - setting Selina up for a possible run in the presidential primaries against Maddox and her nemesis, war-vet Danny Chung. Over the course of this season's 10 episodes, Selina and her staff will set up an exploratory campaign office in D.C. and travel to Silicon Valley (to raise money) and London (to meet with heads of state), while Amy (Anna Chlumsky) and Dan (Reid Scott) vie to be Selina's campaign manager. As always, "Veep" will continue to show that in Washington, even the most banal decisions can have ripple effects, with unexpected and far-reaching consequences.
