  • Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. Veep follows Meyer and her staff 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.

    Meyer's inner circle includes: her chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), longtime press spokesperson Mike McClintock (Matt Walsh), right hand and body man Gary (Tony Hale) and secretary Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) all of whom often do battle with Dan Egan (Reid Scott) an ambitious interloper and smug White House liaison Jonah (Tim Simons).

    Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style. Veep is authentic without being specifically biographical about what it is like to hold the least effectual post in the most powerful office in the world.

    Executive Producers: Armando Iannucci, Chris Godsick, Frank Rich;  Co-Executive Producer: Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche;  Producers: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stephanie Laing; Directors: Armando Iannucci, Tristram Shapeero, Chris Morris  Writers: Armando Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Sean Gray, Ian Martin, Will Smith, Tony Roche, Roger Drew.

  • Sookie Stackhouse and her supernatural cohorts have a disturbing new political power play to deal with in Season 5 -a growing war between the Vampire Authority and 'vampire fundamentalists'--and the outcome could decide the fate of human existence. 

    In Season 5, the hit HBO series presents a whole new wave of otherworldly characters, including Vampire Guardian Roman (Emmy® - nominee Christopher Meloni) who seeks human-vampire co-existence; vampire zealot Salome (Valentina Cervi) who is intent on recreating the world in God's vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora (Lucy Griffiths) who shares the same maker as Sookie suitor Eric Northman; werewolves J.D. and Martha who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and more.

  • As if vampires, werewolves, werepanthers and shapeshifters weren't enough, Sookie Stackhouse and her allies in Bon Temps are about to face another round of otherworldly threats. It's time to bare your fangs for Season Four of this acclaimed HBO drama series that continues the story of this human/fairy waitress with telepathic gifts and an irresistible attraction to a vampire named Bill Compton. Though the bloody threat of Russell Edgington may have passed (for now), fresh trouble is brewing in Bon Temps... and many questions remain unanswered.

  • In Bon Temps, everyone has something to hide. But when new threats emerge, no one can conceal the secrets of their past.

    After Sookie discovers that Bill’s been kidnapped, she heads to Mississippi where she becomes entangled in a world ruled by a pack of vicious werewolves and the powerful Vampire King, Russell Edgington. There, her powers resurface and she learns that Bill may not be trusted. Eric is also drawn to the King’s domain to settle an old score; Tara dives deep into turmoil; Jason falls for a mysterious woman; Lafayette can’t avoid love or demons; Jessica sharpens her vampire skills; and Sam uncovers the truth about his birth family. It all leads up to the revelation of the series... Sookie’s true identity.

  • When we last checked in with Sookie Stackhouse, the mystery surrounding a Bon Temps serial killer had finally been solved, to the town’s infinite relief. Sookie is thrilled that her vampire soul-mate, Bill Compton, has escaped with his life (or is it death?) after coming to her daylight defence.

    On other fronts, Sookie’s pal Tara Thornton sets down new roots with an affluent benefactor, Maryann Forrester; Sam Merlotte resolves to get in shape-shift shape after a forest foray; roguish brother Jason finds new purpose with an anti-vampire sect; and detective Andy Bellefleur licks his wounds after being proven wrong about Jason’s guilt. But just as things are settling down, some deadly new twists threaten to ratchet up the saga of Sookie Stackhouse to bloody new heights!

  • True Blood chronicles the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps... where vampires have emerged from the coffin, and no longer need humans for their fix.

    Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, Golden Globe® winner for True Blood, Academy Award® - winner for The Piano) works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Her situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron - 173-year old Bill Compton (Steven Moyer, Quills) - and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other.

    Delivering the best of what audiences have come to expect from Creator and Executive Producer Alan Ball (writer of Oscar® - winning Best Picture American Beauty, creator of the Emmy® Award-winning HBO® series Six Feet Under), True Blood is a dark and sexy tale that boldly delves into the heart - and the neck - of the Deep South.

  • With the fall of Barksdale and the ascent of young Marlo Stanfield as West Baltimore's drug king, the detail continues to "follow the money" up the political ladder in the midst of a mayoral election that pits the black incumbent, Clarence Royce against an ambitious white councilman, Tommy Carcetti.

    The theme of urban education is explored through four new characters - Michael Lee, Namond Brice, Randy Wagstaff and "Dukie" Weems as they traverse adolescence in the stunted, drug-saturated streets of West Baltimore.

    The world that awaits these boys and the American commitment to equal opportunity are depicted brilliantly in the edgy, all-too-realistic Season 4 of The Wire.

  • In West Baltimore, the narcotics and homicide divisions begrudgingly launch a sprawling investigation at the insistence of a frustrated judge.

    Led by Lt. Daniels, the half-hearted detail focuses on Avon Barksdale and his partner, Stringer Bell, the two men behind a drug operation that reigns in the high-rises. Barksdale and Bell are also responsible for a string of murders - raps they always manage to beat. Despite resistance from up high, the Barksdale investigation will culminate in a complex series of dangerous wiretaps and surveillance.

    Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn.

  • Tony Soprano is the head of two families and sometimes the pressure is too much to bear. As head of the Sopranos crime family, he deals with conniving underbosses, rival families, and the occasional dead body.

    As husband to his wife, Carmela, and father to his two children, Meadow and Anthony Jr., he deals with financial difficulties, infidelity, and trying to keep his "professional" life from colliding with his family life.
