Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).

In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.
