May 4 TV Picks: ‘Veep’ on HBO
TV picks for Sunday, May 4, 2014, include “Veep” on HBO, “Call the Midwife” on KCTS and “The Good Wife” on CBS.
Season three of this Emmy-winning, wickedly funny comedy finds Vice President Selena Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) preparing a run for the nation’s top job. Dreyfus is hilarious (as always), and is matched quirk-for-quirk by the actors who play her inner circle (Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott and Tony Hale). 10:30 p.m. Sunday, May 4, on HBO (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
