"Politics is about people," former Sen. Selina Meyer is fond of saying. Unfortunately, the people Meyer, a charismatic leader and rising star in her party, meets after becoming vice president are nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about. "Veep" follows the new VP as she puts out political fires, juggles her public schedule and private life, and does everything within her limited powers to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. Meyer's trusted -- and some not-so-trusted -- aides include chief of staff Amy, spokesperson Mike, secretary Sue and right-hand man Gary.

Did You Know?
In an episode of Seinfeld
(1989) (Seinfeld: The Watch
(1992)), Elaine (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus
) is asked by Joe Davola if he knows her from somewhere and she answers with a joke: that he probably recognizes her because her face is sculpted on Mount Rushmore, alongside the U.S. presidents, instead of Roosevelt's face. The poster for the fourth season of Veep, shows the face of Selina Meyer (who's also played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), sculpted on Mount Rushmore, but it appears instead of Jefferson's face. See more
