Chris Morris to Direct Veep Episodes and HBO Releases (Short) Teaser Trailer

HBO have released a short (very short) teaser trailer for Veep. To be honest the trailer isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, but the fact that the series is written by Armando Iannucci, and ┬áthe fact that Armando has confirmed Chris Morris will direct some of the episodes is probably the most exciting thing in the world.

The show stars Seinfeld/Curb star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a disconbobulated vice-president, who is not content with the role.  Many are comparing the character to Sarah Palin.

As usual there is the worry with an American remake of a British idea that it might become too American, but if can trust anyone to keep it as we like it it’s Iannucci (Morris also).

For those of you who didnt make it to the end of the trailer (all 27 seconds of it), the show is coming to HBO in April 2012. It will be shown in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
