EMMY(R)-WINNING HBO COMEDY SERIES "VEEP," STARRING EMMY(R)-WINNER JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, RETURNS FOR ITS SIXTH SEASON APRIL 16

One year ago, President Selina Meyer lost a Senate vote to resolve the Electoral College tie. Now out of public office for the first time in years, she seeks to secure her legacy and find her place in the world, while much of her staff pursues endeavors of their own, with varying degrees of success.

The Emmy(R)-winning comedy series VEEP kicks off its ten-episode sixth season SUNDAY, APRIL 16 (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, the former vice president and president, who is struggling to navigate uncharted political territory.

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 on-again, off-again right hand; Emmy(R) nominee Matt Walsh as Mike, her former spokesperson; Reid Scott as the ultra-ambitious Dan; Timothy Simons as Jonah, a hanger-on turned congressman; Kevin Dunn as Ben, her former chief of staff; Emmy(R) nominee Gary Cole as analyst Kent; and Sam Richardson as staff member Richard.

Recurring guest stars on the new season include Sarah Sutherland as Catherine, Selina's daughter, and Clea DuVall as Marjorie, Catherine's girlfriend. Other guests this season include Amy Brenneman, Margaret Colin, Stephen Fry and Paul Scheer.

Upcoming episodes:

Episode #49 (season 6, episode 1): "Omaha"

Debut: SUNDAY, APRIL 16 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

One year after losing the presidency, Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) attempts to secure her legacy. Dan (Reid Scott) tries to ingratiate himself at his new job. Amy's (Anna Chlumsky) brash D.C.-style personality proves too much for her new co-workers.

Written by Lew Morton; directed by David Mandel.

Episode #50 (season 6, episode 2): "Library"

Debut: SUNDAY, APRIL 23 (10:30-11:00 p.m.)

Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) attends the opening of President Hughes' library. Jonah (Timothy Simons) gets advice on how to rise in the political ranks; Dan (Reid Scott) suffers through Jane's (Margaret Colin) whims; Amy (Anna Chlumsky) releases an attack ad.

Written by Alex Gregory & Peter Huyck; directed by Craig Zisk.

Episode #51 (season 6, episode 3): "Georgia"

Debut: SUNDAY, APRIL 30 (10:30-11:00 p.m.)

Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) helps monitor the first free and democratic election in Georgia - the country, not the state - and is reunited with an old "friend." Meanwhile, Mike (Matt Walsh) and Gary (Tony Hale) hide evidence of a major mishap, and Jonah (Timothy Simons) and Richard (Sam Richardson) have an eventful night out. Back in the U.S., Dan (Reid Scott) tries to help Amy (Anna Chlumsky).

Written by Billy Kimball; directed by Becky Martin.

The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.

In Sept. 2016, VEEP won the Emmy(R) for Outstanding Comedy Series, the show's second win in a row, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus received the Emmy(R) for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, her fifth consecutive win in the category. She previously received Emmys(R) for "Seinfeld" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine." The series also won for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series.

VEEP was created by Armando Iannucci; executive produced by David Mandel, Frank Rich, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lew Morton and Morgan Sackett.
