“In the Loop” director writing political sitcom for HBO, Julia Louis-Dreyfus to play vice president

Pin it

The director of one of the best political comedies in recent memory, Armando Iannucci of In the Loop, is developing a half-hour sitcom for HBO. Hopefully, Veep will also have petulant boss-babies, high-school-level political cattiness, and great dialogue (only not in British accents this time — lame , we know.)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is rumored to play the lead as the first female vice president of the United States. She fits the bill! Maybe it's a sign of good things to come, the way this Young Jeezy video preordained the election of Barack Obama.

Don't you think?
