We’ve got some pretty clear takeaways from this season 3 trailer for HBO’s Veep starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Her character, Vice President Selina Meyer, is running for president. And she’s meeting with Office Space‘s Diedrich Bader on how to proceed with her staff. And it looks like no one is safe from getting fired.
Judging from just this quick trailer, it seems as though the show might be continuing last year’s trajectory of becoming a more plot-driven show. That makes sense, because, as with Hello Ladies and Curb Your Enthusiasm, it’s hard to sustain a show that seemingly hits reset every week to begin anew with terrible, albeit funny, characters.
It’s like West Wing, but these people are completely different types of jerks.
