Veep

HBO has renewed the comedy series Veep for a fourth season and freshman comedy Silicon Valley for a second season. The renewals follow the recent two-season renewal of drama Game of Thrones. Created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar(R) nominee for co-writing In the Loop), Veep stars Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about. The Emmy(R)-nominated and Writers Guild Award-winning series kicked off its ten-episode third season Sunday, April 6 at 10:30pm ET/PT. In addition to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the ensemble cast for the third season includes Emmy(R) winner Tony Hale, Emmy(R) nominee Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw and Kevin Dunn.

Silicon Valley

Mike Judge (Office Space, Beavis & Butt-head, King of the Hill) brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in the new comedy series Silicon Valley. Partially inspired by Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late '80s, the show is a collaboration between Judge and Alec Berg (Seinfeld, HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm), and began its eight-episode first season Sunday, April 6 at 10:00pm. Cast regulars for the first season include Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew and the late Christopher Evan Welch. Matt Ross guest stars.
