Summary: Former Senator Selina Meyer has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. 'Veep' follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington.
“Veep” has earned enough critical and award-circuit plaudits (including Emmys last year for Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale) to qualify as a winner for HBO, even before throwing in the inside-the-Beltway angle, which tends to yield a multiplier effect in terms of media coverage beyond the usual suspects. And the show does have an unpretentious quality that’s somewhat refreshing amid the recent spate of D.C.-centric series. Even so, “Veep” remains pretty well defined by its protagonist’s inherent plight: noteworthy, yes, but still a significant step away from true greatness.
