Veep Spent Yesterday Filming in Bethesda and Spring Valley

Folks in Bethesda’s Westmoreland Hills neighborhood woke up to an unusual sight yesterday morning—craft services trucks and camera crews rolling down the street towards the typically quiet Westmoreland Park. The reason? Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the cast of Veep were filming the show’s fifth season (the first four were shot in Baltimore, and most of the production now happens in LA). We can only imagine what characters Selina Meyer, Jonah Ryan, and Richard T. Splett were up to in the woods that back up to the Capital Crescent Trail—maybe Meyer has developed a murderous Frank Underwood streak?—but in the meantime, here are some shots from the day.

We work in the woods & we are serious about it. @thesamrichardson @timothycsimons #veep

Later, the cast and crew moved onto Spring Valley, the Northwest DC neighborhood where Louis-Dreyfus grew up:
