From Wikipedia:

Veep is an HBO television comedy series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus set in the office of Selina Meyer, a fictional Vice President of the United States. The series was created by Armando Iannucci, who previously created the politically satirical BBC series The Thick of It (2005) and the Academy Award-nominated film In the Loop (2009).

Veep premiered on HBO on April 22, 2012, with an eight-episode season. This was followed by a second season of ten episodes debuting on April 14, 2013. On May 1, 2013, HBO renewed Veep for a ten-episode third season that began on April 6, 2014. On April 21, 2014, HBO ordered a fourth season of Veep.

Veep has received critical acclaim and won several major awards. It has been nominated three years in a row for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, and its second season won the Writers Guild of America Award for Television: Comedy Series. It joins The Office, 30 Rock and Modern Family as the only comedy series since 2000 to win awards from both the Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild of America in the same year. Louis-Dreyfus has won two Emmy Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Critics' Choice Television Award for her performance.
