The fifth season of HBO's political satire series is headed to Blu-ray in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, HBO says 'Veep: The Complete Fifth Season' will hit Blu-ray on April 11.
Season 5 of the acclaimed comedy series created by Armando Iannucci finds Selina Meyer in the midst of a virtually unprecedented Electoral College tie – with her future as President coming down to only a few hundred votes. Selina finds herself spinning her wheels in D.C. as her staff continues their mission to make her seem presidential (even though she is the President) while fending off the ambitions of her charismatic Vice Presidential running mate who, through an obscure constitutional procedure, could end up being President. Veep continues to prove that in Washington, even the most banal decisions can have ripple effects – with unexpected and often hilarious consequences.
The fifth season of Veep, the first with showrunner and executive producer David Mandel (Curb Your Enthusiasm) at the helm is "one of its strongest and most creative seasons yet" (TV Insider). The series features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Emmy winner Tony Hale, Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole and Sam Richardson.
The 10-episode Veep: The Complete Fifth Season will include a free digital download copy of the full season, plus exclusive new bonus content containing more than 30 minutes of hilarious deleted scenes and entertaining audio commentaries from cast and crew including Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, David Mandel and more!
