Veep Creator Leaving After Season 4
Veep creator is leaving after Season 4
Armando Iannucci has hinted for years that he would eventually step down as Veep's showrunner. Now it's official. As HBO notes, Iannucci has had to juggle his family life in Britain with filming the HBO comedy in the United States. If/when Veep is renewed for a 5th season, Curb Your Enthusiasm vet David Mandel will become the new showrunner. "Armando is not replaceable," HBO said in a statement, "but we are confident that Veep will continue to be produced at the highest levels with new showrunner David Mandel. David has worked with HBO for many years as executive producer, writer and director for Curb Your Enthusiasm."
