Created by Armando Iannucci (Academy Award nominee for co-writing In the Loop), the series was nominated for three 2012 Emmy Awards winning one for its star Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series).

Former senator Selina Meyer was a rising star in her party, a charismatic leader who seemed to have unlimited potential. Some pundits thought she might even occupy the White House someday. Then she became vice president. Veep follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of Vice President Meyer as she puts out political fires, juggles a busy public schedule and demanding private life, and defends the president's interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive.
