Check out the announcement promo in the player below!
Also joining the table read, which is set to air live on Sunday, December 8 at 8 p.m. EST, are Timothy Simons, Clea DuVall, Matt Walsh, Gary Cole, Sarah Sutherland, David Mandel (Executive Producer and Showrunner) and several special guests. The group will be reading the uncut script of the Emmy-nominated episode “Mother” penned by Alex Gregory and Pete Huyck.
“The cast of Veep had so much fun coming together during the election that we were looking for something else to do,” Louis-Dreyfus and Mandel said in a joint statement. “Luckily, there are two runoff elections in Georgia so we decided to get together again and bring some friends. And if this goes well, we are hoping for a second runoff, maybe in March.”
“Georgia’s most racially and generationally diverse electorate turned out in historic numbers in the November election,” America Votes President Greg Speed and AV’s Georgia Deputy State Director Ashley Robinson said in a statement. “Now, America Votes and a coalition of incredible Georgia-based groups are working to remake history two months later by turning out voters again for January’s runoff elections that will determine control of the U.S. Senate. America Votes and our Georgia partner groups will be hard at work through the holidays to register voters, re-enroll them to vote by mail, and to turn them out for in-person early voting and Election Day on January 5th. We saw the huge impact of this organizing in Georgia in November and we can see it again in January if we support the groups and organizers doing this critical work. America Votes is so grateful that the Veep cast is reuniting to support our Georgia coalition’s incredible organizers working to make history again in these critical runoff elections. This cast reunion event will help ensure that Georgia groups have the resources they need to engage and mobilize voters by phone, by text, in the mail and by having conversations through safe, contactless door-to-door canvassing. VEEP’s reunion is supporting the work that makes our democracy work.”
