HBO Lands Space Comedy From ‘Veep’ Creator Armando Iannucci

After spending seven seasons in Washington D.C., it’s no surprise that Veep creator Armando Iannucci would want to get as far away from the nation’s capital as possible… but this might be a little ridiculous.

But one was Kent’s idea that Selina Myers should address voters, standing on top of a crate, as an attempt to connect with the ordinary working voter. Naturally, it all goes wrong.
