LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2014 – HBO has renewed the comedy series VEEP for a fourth season and SILICON VALLEY for a second season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The renewals follow the recent two-season renewal of “Game of Thrones.”
Created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar® nominee for co-writing “In the Loop”), VEEP stars Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who becomes vice president, only to discover The Job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about. The Emmy®-nominated and Writers Guild Award-winning series kicked off its ten-episode third season Sunday, April 6 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).
In addition to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the ensemble cast for the third season includes Emmy® winner Tony Hale, Emmy® nominee Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw and Kevin Dunn.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Naked Rolling Stone Cover Has a Mistake! Star Blames Tattoo Error on Veep’s Mike
Naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus could only distract true historians for so long.
The more detail-conscious folks on the Internet quickly noticed that Rolling Stone had unintentionally rewritten history with its instant-classic cover featuring the Veep star, in that the tattoo of the preamble to the Constitution scrawled across her back included John Hancock’s signature.
But he didn’t sign the Constitution, he signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
“Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution.Yet another Mike f–k-up.Dummy.#veep #crackexcuse @VeepHBO @mrmattwalsh cc@rollingstone,” Louis-Dreyfus tweeted today, placing the blame on Veep’s consistently unreliable communications director Mike McLintock, played by Matt Walsh.
This week’s episode of Veep is capped and in the Julia Louis-Dreyfus Network Gallery.

Over lunch at A.O.C. restaurant in Los Angeles, Ms. Pelosi (in a pistachio jacket and trousers) and Ms. Louis-Dreyfus (in an embroidered black cardigan and slim skirt) shared plates of roasted vegetables, cheeses and charcuterie, and renewed an acquaintance that had begun a month earlier at the White House state dinner for the French president, François Hollande. After some initial debate about whether Ms. Pelosi should be addressed as “Madam Leader” (“No, please. If Julia is Julia, then I’m Nancy”), the two spoke with The New York Times about political wardrobes, powerful women and empty nests.
Just in time for the new season of Veep I’ve added a new layout to the site!
