Add Armando Iannucci’s 17-time Emmy winning satire to the list of shows reuniting in 2020.
On Saturday, Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that members of HBO’s beloved political parody would reunite for a livestream contributing to Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. The event will be held on Oct. 4 at 7:00 p.m. ET. Donations of any amount made here guarantee attendance to the one-time stream, and they benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
“All roads to the White House go through the great state of Wisconsin,” Louis-Dreyfus explained of the event’s intent in her announcement.
“Trump can’t win reelection if he doesn’t win Wisconsin. So the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has built an unprecedented voter mobilization operation, and they need resources in these final days to deliver Wisconsin to Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Harris.”
In a post on Twitter, Louis-Dreyfus confirmed Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Sam Richardson, Clea DuVall, Matt Walsh, and more special guests would participate in the reunion — with Seasons 5-7 executive producer David Mandel acting as moderator.
The event does not appear to have a limited capacity, but we’d recommend fans who want to attend get their links to ensure a spot. As Selina Meyer would say, “That, ladies and gentlemen, is democracy.”
