Julia Louis-Dreyfus is Vice President of the United States Selina Meyer, who finds the job is nothing like she expected, but everything her incompetent staff warned her about.
“Veep” follows the new VP as she puts out political fires, juggles her public schedule and private life, and does everything within her limited powers to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. Meyer’s trusted — and some not-so-trusted — aides include chief of staff Amy, spokesperson Mike, secretary Sue and right-hand man Gary.
When Selina’s daughter, Catherine, comes out, she has to deal with one more unexpected surprise.
The show’s quick and vulgar dialogue is not for everyone, but if you enjoy that kind of humor, it is laugh out loud hilarious.
