Julia Louis Dreyfuss in Veep

HBO have released the first trailer for the US version of The Thick Of It. Titled Veep, the series stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the American vice-president, Selina Meyer, and has been written by Armando Ianucci and Simon Blackwell.

 

An ABC pilot for an American Thick Of It was originally made in 2007, written by Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwirtz and Richard Day, but when that failed to be picked up, Iannucci entered talks with HBO.

 

The series, whose directors include Chris Morris (fuck, yeah!), arrives on HBO on 22 April and will be shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK at a later date.
