EMMY(R)-WINNING HBO COMEDY SERIES "VEEP," STARRING EMMY(R) WINNER JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, RETURNS FOR ITS SEVENTH AND FINAL SEASON MARCH 31

Selina Meyer, the former vice president and president, is looking to get back to the Oval Office. Can she shake off years of flubs and scandals?

The Emmy(R)-winning comedy series VEEP kicks off its seven-episode, seventh and final season SUNDAY, MARCH 31 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The show stars Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who is hitting the campaign trail as she runs for president.

The ensemble cast of the show also includes: two-time Emmy(R) winner Tony Hale as Gary, her devoted bodyman; Emmy(R) nominee Anna Chlumsky as Amy, her right hand; Emmy(R) nominee Matt Walsh as Mike, her former spokesperson; Reid Scott as the ultra-ambitious Dan; Timothy C. Simons as Jonah Ryan, a former hanger-on turned congressman; Kevin Dunn as Ben, her campaign manager; Emmy(R) nominee Gary Cole as analyst Kent; Sam Richardson as unassuming staffer Richard; and Sarah Sutherland as Catherine, Selina's daughter.

Recurring guest stars on the new season include: Clea DuVall as Marjorie, Catherine's girlfriend; Margaret Colin as Jane McCabe; Patton Oswalt as Teddy Sykes; and Brian Huskey as Leon West, Selina's spokesman.

The new season of VEEP finds Selina Meyer trying to gain traction in early primary states, wooing uber-wealthy donors while navigating threats from primary challengers, including aide-turned-congressman Jonah Ryan. Selina's band of misfits is also back, except for Mike, who's been banished from her orbit and is now covering the presidential campaign, having been replaced by his ongoing nemesis in the press, reporter Leon West.

Meanwhile, Amy is figuring out how she feels about her pregnancy vis-a-vis Dan, who seems unwilling to give up his playboy ways for fatherhood. Rounding out the team are ever-faithful bagman Gary, cantankerous Ben, numbers-obsessed Kent and staffer Richard.
