HBO Schedules 'Veep,' 'Game Change'
HBO has scheduled premiere dates for its two vastly different politically themed projects.
The premium cabler's Julia Louis-Dreyfus D.C.-set comedy Veep, in which she stars as the vice president of the United States, will bow Sunday, April 22 at 10 p.m.
Game Change, a telefilm chronicling the 2008 presidential election starring Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin, will premiere Saturday, March 10.
The projects join Ricky Gervais observational sitcom Life's Too Short and its Danny McBride comedy Eastbound & Down on HBO's schedule. A specific April return date for George R.R. Martin's fantasy drama Game of Thrones and one for freshman comedy Girls have not yet been determined.
