Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her 3-time Emmy-winning role as Vice President Selina Meyer in Veep: Season 3, the third season of HBO’s sharp and satirical comedy series.

veep0-1_optHilariously 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.

After the revelation at the end of Season 2 that the president will not run for re-election, Season 3 begins with Selina, eyeing a promotion, courting Iowa Caucus voters at a signing of her new book. Soon, however, she learns that the Secretary of Defense, war veteran Danny Chung, is resigning – setting the stage for a possible clash with her nemesis in the presidential primaries.

Created by England’s Armando Iannucci (In the Loop), the fast-moving, fast-talking television series features an excellent ensemble of co-stars, including Tony Hale (Arrested Development) as Gary, Meyer’s right-hand man; Anna Chlumsky (Blood Car) as Amy, her chief of staff; Matt Walsh (TV’s Hung) as Mike, her weathered spokesperson; Reid Scott (My Boys) as Dan, an ambitious political aide; and Timothy C. Simons (Days Together) as Jonah—abusively referred to a “Jonad”–a  young and slimy White House liaison.

The 10-episode VEEP: The Complete Third Season set features exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes and audio commentaries with the entire cast.
