We spend quite a bit of time talking about British shows that may see the light of day in America, or may not, so it’s a pleasure to be able to jump up and down about a British success story that you’ll get to see before they do.

Armando Iannucci’s astonishing Vice-Presidential comedy Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is coming back to HBO on April 14. There’s already been a teaser trailer, which looks like this:

Worth it for the Situation Room gag alone, frankly.
