The new season of the brilliant, biting UK political comedy "The Thick of It" kicks off on BBC tonight and here in the Us on Hulu tomorrow, Sunday, September 9th. This fourth season is Hulu's first international co-production (hence what's essentially a day-and-date premiere) and marks the return of the series after a three-year hiatus, during which time creator Armando Iannucci headed to HBO to make the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show "Veep." Read More: Armando Iannucci on 'Veep,' Politics and the Inherent Funniness of Being Vice President Here's Hulu's description of the upcoming seven-episode arc: Government embarrassment, ministerial cock-up, coalition rows, backroom deals, policy U-turns, spin doctoring, political back-stabbing, wild media speculation, and more time spent with one's family. It can only be the eagerly-anticipated return of Armando Iannucci's sharp political satire "The Thick of It". »
