Armando Iannucci Gets A HBO Pilot

HBO has ordered a political comedy pilot titled 'Veep' from satirist Armando Iannucci creator of 'The Thick of It' & 'In The Loop', with Seinfeld veteran Julia Louis-Dreyfus in talks to star.

Veep follows a female senator who becomes vice president of the United States and finds the job is "nothing like she expected and everything everyone ever warned about."

Iannucci will write (along with Simon Blackwell), direct and executive produce (along with Chris Godsick and Frank Rich).
