HBO’s VEEP is among this year’s Peabody Award winners. Seven winners were included in the award including Beyonce’s Lemonade and FX’s “Atlanta”.
Thursday, April 20th The Peabody Awards Board of Jurors awarded seven Entertainment “stories that feature a powerhouse lineup of female characters, and dramas that break the mold of typical television fare.”
According to the Board of Jurors, Veep is a “rare show blessed with a perfectly cast ensemble, including the comedic genius of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep is a workplace comedy that not only captures the zeitgeist of the current bizarre political moment but transcends its own form to deliver a sobering message, with sharp dialogue, street savvy—and lots of laughs.”
The Peabody Awards are based at the the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
