Forget 'House of Cards,' 'Veep' is the Real D.C. on TV

Ever wonder what goes on in Washington? Writers, directors and TV executives have been trying to give us an inside look for years. From Aarron Sorkin’s idealistic ode to government in the critically acclaimed series “The West Wing” to Netflix’s dark, twisted overnight hit “House of Cards.”

Drama has been the genre of choice for D.C. on TV. But HBO’s “Veep” gives us a different take, introducing us to a hilarious cast of characters that we hope, but doubt, are the product of the writers’ imaginations.

Fusion’s Alicia Menendez interviewed one of the stars from “Veep” and perhaps the only character on the show who seems to know what she’s doing, Sufe Bradshaw. Check it out!
