While I’m sure that Luck, Life’s Too Short, and Angry Boys each have their charms, it’s HBO’s spring lineup I’m really looking forward to. Between Game of Thrones‘ return and the debuts of Judd Apatow’s Girls and Armando Iannucci’s Veep, I already know exactly what I’ll be doing each Sunday from April through June. And now, at long last, the network’s provided some premiere dates to mark on the calendar. Get the details and watch the trailers after the jump.

Entertainment Weekly has the info on the upcoming schedule.

Game Change, an HBO film from Recount director Jay Roach and his Recount screenwriter Danny Strong, will premiere Saturday, March 10. Adapted from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin‘s bestselling tome, the drama stars Julianne Moore and Ed Harris as Sarah Palin and John McCain and centers around the politicians’ bid for the White House during the 2008 election. Woody Harrelson, Ron Livingston, and Sarah Paulson also appear. Watch the trailer below:

The second season of Game of Thrones will kick off Sunday, April 1. The story, which is based on the second book of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, will pick up where the first season left off with various clans and individuals vying for power in the Seven Kingdoms. Check out the trailer below — but be warned that major spoilers for Season 1 lie ahead if you’re not caught up:
