Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her 4-time Emmy-winning role as Vice President Selina Meyer in VEEP: Season 5, the fifth season of HBO’s sharp and satirical comedy series.

Hilariously skewering the whirlwind day-to-day existence of the Vice President’s office and Washington politics at-large, the series continues to prove that in Washington, even the most banal decisions can have ripple effects, with unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

Season 5 finds Selina Meyer in the midst of a virtually unprecedented Electoral College tie – with her future as President coming down to only a few hundred votes.  Selina finds herself spinning her wheels in D.C. as her staff continues their mission to make her seem presidential (even though she is the President) while fending off the ambitions of her charismatic Vice Presidential running mate who,  through an obscure constitutional procedure, could end up being President.  VEEP continues to prove that in Washington, even the most banal decisions can have ripple effects – with unexpected and often hilarious consequences.

The DVD and Blu-ray incarnations of the fifth season of VEEP, the first with showrunner and executive producer David Mandel at the helm, also includes more than 30 minutes of hilarious deleted scenes and entertaining audio commentaries from cast and crew!
