The HBO star said her show about a fictional vice president has led some of VP Biden's staff to start saying, ‘That’s a “Veep” moment.’

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Matt Walsh and Anna Chlumsky portray a fictional vice president and her staff on HBO’s "Veep."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ HBO series about a hapless, frequently frustrated vice president has some fans in the real-life Veep’s office, the actress revealed. Vice President Biden contacted the “Veep” star with congratulations after she won an Emmy for her role as VP Selina Meyer, Louis-Dreyfus told Politico. She added that “he was very funny about it, which led me to believe that he may have seen a couple of episodes.” A team of political consultants work on the show’s accuracy — and Louis-Dreyfus said she has heard from Biden’s staff that they are often on the mark.



“I will say, I’ve actually heard from people who will remain anonymous who work in the office of the vice president that they’ve started to say, ‘That’s a “Veep” moment,’” she said. “That’s a huge compliment to the writing of the show.” She added that the office itself is ripe for comedy. “The role of vice president is perfect, because it is so close and yet so far,” Louis-Dreyfus told Politico. “There’s an inherent conflict; there’s an inherent problem ... Anybody who is vice president is politically ambitious, but they never had it as a goal to be vice president. No one aspires to the vice presidency, so it’s just a perfect area for comedy.”

The second season of “Veep” premieres April 14.
