TVLine Items: Veep Season 5 Trailer, Big Dead Finale, Y&R News and More

In the final seconds of Veep‘s Season 5 trailer, Selina handles a major financial crisis by making a comparison to male genitalia.

So, even though she might lose her POTUS title to Bill O’Brien, Selina is clearly sticking to her vulgar, inappropriate guns in the HBO comedy’s fifth season.

In the video above, Selina and her staff brainstorm how to break last season’s electoral tie, all while President Meyer deals with an economic collapse (and a bedroom rendezvous with Mad Men‘s John Slattery).

Veep returns Sunday, April 24, at 10:30/9:30c; press PLAY above to view the full-length trailer.

    *raises hand* Don’t most DVRs take of things like that themselves? Though I must say I miss the days of being able to set mine to record precisely what I want and not have set a show to end two hours later just to get everything in one block when I should be able to record from 7:59 to 10:01.

    What, Andrew Shue was busy?

  3. Steven says:

    I love Melrose Place so I may need to watch that episode of FOTB even though I haven’t watched in awhile.

  4. HAP says:

    Julia must have found the fountain of youth. She looks fabulous at 55.

  5. Mr. Tran K says:

    Really hope Cooper Barrett gets cancelled soon.

    Glad to have a date for Doctor Who.
