The second season of HBO’s comedy series Veep will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday October 16th at 10:30pm. The premiere episode will also debut on-demand (ahead of its broadcast premiere) on October 10th.
Created by Armando Iannucci & Simon Blackwell, Veep follows Selina Meyer, who becomes Vice President of the United States (or Veep as the position is colloquially known) only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about. The comedy series stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer, Anna Chlumsky as Amy Brookheimer, the vice-president’s chief of staff; Tony Hale as Gary Walsh, the vice-president’s personal aide; Reid Scott as Dan Egan, the vice-president’s deputy director of communications; Timothy Simons as Jonah Ryan, the White House liaison; and Matt Walsh as Mike McLintock, the vice-president’s director of communications. Both Gary Cole and Kevin Dunn are set to make guest appearances in season 2.
