It’s getting harder and harder to decide what Julia Louis-Dreyfus should be most famous for.
You’d think her defining role as Elaine on NBC’s Seinfeld would seal the deal. Then came boffo notices for her lead performances on CBS mainstay The New Adventures of Old Christine and HBO’s sophisticated Veep.

The WGA’s complete list of TV series follows:
