The sitcom received a Best Directing Comedy Series trophy at the DGA Awards, and Dreyfus received a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

Last year, Veep also won Outstanding comedy series, while its star Louis-Dreyfus was triumphant in the Outstanding lead actress in a comedy category at the Emmys.

Doctor Who and The Thick Of It actor Peter Capaldi joined as director of Veep for two episodes in Season 5 while Armando Iannucci departed as showrunner after four years.

It first premiered in April 2012. Veep was created by Iannucci as an adaptation of the British sitcom The Thick Of It. The political satire is set in the office of Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus), a fictional Vice President, and subsequent President, of the United States. The series follows Meyer and her team as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington DC.
