Julia Louis-Dreyfus might finally exorcise the ghost of Elaine Benes with her brilliant performance as vapid, filthy-mouthed, anything but presidential U.S. vice president Selina Meyer, who finds that being second in command is a dead-end job. This relentlessly smart comedy avoids stereotypes and features inspired comic turns by Anna Chlumsky (two decades after My Girl) as Meyer's chief of staff and Tony Hale as her right-hand man Gary. Premieres on HBO April 22.
