HBO is in discussions with one of the former stars of “Seinfeld” for a possible return to series television in the political sitcom “Veep,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus would star as the U.S. vice president, the story says.
"Veep," which is being penned by Scottish scriptwriter Armando Ianucci and Simon Blackwell, follows the experiences of a U.S. senator who becomes the nation’s vice president.
In a statement from HBO, the lead character learns that being VP is "nothing like she expected and everything everyone ever warned about."
Louis-Dreyfus ended her run on CBS’s "The New Adventures of Old Christine" last year.
