Now that any HBO viewer can buy their own streaming package outside a cable subscription, one had to wonder what would become of Amazon Prime’s old deal to host some of the network’s best shows. Sadly, you may have only weeks to catch some of HBO’s best series like The Wire or Six Feet Under, which are leaving Amazon behind.
Another day, another Trump administration gaffe worthy of Arrested Development or Veep. It’s the latter’s case this time out, as Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s insane Hitler gaffe gets the Veep closing credits treatment, and even the cast agrees it’s too on-point.
After five seasons, a change in showrunners and the real-life horror show that was the 2016 presidential election, not only is Veep still going strong, it continues to get better every year — more biting, more brazen, and always more hilarious. With Season 5 hitting DVD and Blu-ray this week ahead of next Sunday’s Season 6 premiere, we sat down with stars Gary Cole, Reid Scott and Sam Richardson to discuss the return of the HBO series, their favorite moments from Season 5, and what makes Kent so fascinating.
It’s an open question how Veep will fare without its title character actually employed in any administration, but Season 6 is nonetheless primed for further humiliation in its April debut. See for yourself, as the first full trailer finds Selina Meyer getting re-acquainted with an old friend, sidestepping both figurative and literal landmines.
We’ve caught Silicon Valley’s Season 4 premiere date and a first teaser since learning that Veep would debut Season 6 in April, but at long last, Selina Meyer is coming back to the public eye. See for yourself in a first Season 6 tease, as the former President takes to spreading democracy around the globe like patient zero.
Selina Meyer may no longer be the President, and Veep may no longer be satire, but we’ll nonetheless get a glimpse at what could have been in Season 6. HBO has given an executive order for an April premiere, one we’ll happily comply with.
We were all in need of additional laughs over the course of 2016, even as comedy seemed to turn more poignant (and occasionally darker) than ever. That contradiction is no more apparent than with the 2017 Golden Globes’ choice for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, as Atlanta takes home the gold.
The 2016 Emmy Awards have some outstanding upsets, but there’s always bound to be a few repeats. Once again, Veep has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Comedy Series, beating out some impressive competition.
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
Boy, that was quick. 2016 Emmy nominees were announced this morning, and special presenters Lauren Graham and (a very excitable) Anthony Anderson wasted no time in revealing this year’s crop of nominees. While there was rightfully plenty of love to go around for dramas like The People v. O.J. Simpson and Mr. Robot, and comedy faves Veep and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there were a few disappointments — namely, where the hell is UnREAL?! Or The Leftovers? Come on, Emmys.
