“Veep” Is Filming at the University of Maryland This Week

Look lively, Terps, and you might spot an Emmy winner or two.

Is Amy leaving politics in order to interact with the more creative and mature minds of drunken freshmen? Is Dan going undercover to try to win the youth vote? Is Jonah hitting college campuses in an attempt to improve his 0 percent success rate with women?

We don’t know the answer to any of these questions, but we do know that HBO’s hit political comedy Veep will be filming at the University of Maryland for the next two weeks. The show is currently in production for its third season following two big Emmy wins at last month’s awards: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays fictional Vice President Selina Meyer; and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Tony Hale, who plays her faithful minion, Gary.

The news, which comes via a parking alert sent to faculty members, underscores the warm relationship between the show and the state of Maryland. (Veep films on a soundstage in Baltimore, thanks in large part to the 2011 Maryland Film Production Employment Act, which offers generous tax credits to production companies.) So while parking spaces might have to be sacrificed from October 2 to 15, at least students and staff might get to spot a star or two during the process.
