New Video: The Art of… the Comeback
'Veep' Creator Armando Iannucci to Depart After Four Seasons

Armando Iannucci is departing the acclaimed HBO comedy after four seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The pay cabler has tapped David Mandel (Curb Your Enthusiasm) to take Iannucci’s place as showrunner. “We have had conversations with Armando for some time about the challenges of maintaining his family life in London and producing a show in the states,” an HBO rep said in a statement. “Armando is not replaceable but we are confident that Veep will continue to be produced at the highest levels with new show runner, David Mandel. David has worked with HBO for many years as executive producer, writer and director for Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
