When Britain's Secretary Of State For International Development Simon Foster states, in the midst of a radio interview, that a war in the Middle East in "unforeseeable," it doesn't follow his government's "line" on events. The problem is that war is not unforeseeable, what with America itching to invade somewhere in the Middle East and the British government loyally following. Unfortunately, Foster suspects nothing about the firestorm to follow. By the next day, Foster is the target of the Prime Minister's director of communications Malcolm Tucker, and the focus of attention for anti-war American diplomat Karen Clarke. After US General George Miller and State Department hawk Linton Barwick jump into the mix, Foster's mountain of an ill-chosen remark turns into a series of festering molehills. In the end, one thing is clear: grave matters involving global power cannot be separated from the pettiness of democratic governance, which is impelled by careerism, vanity, moral compromise and--at least in London--by ear-singeing profanity

Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns for a second season in her Emmy winning role as Vice President Selina Meyer in VEEP. As midterm elections loom, Vice President Meyer is scoring higher ratings than the President in several popularity polls, which she hopes will boost her influence and help her curry favor with the chief executive. But despite her best intentions, even the most banal actions can set off unexpected and often disastrous consequences. Her staff is close at hand with a laugh-out-loud combination of personal problems and government-insider antics

"The Thick of It smashes its way through the corridors of power in a bulldozer of amusing slip-ups and sharp satire. This brilliant and hilarious series chronicles the blunders of the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a government department barely registering on the national radar. In this Ministry, every announcement is followed by a whirlwind of u-turns, every policy is a scramble and every mishap is met with abuse from the Prime Minister's policy enforcer. Garlanded with rave reviews and packed with awards, this irreverent, brilliant, and painfully funny series is justly seen as a jewel in the BBC's crown."--

The Secretary of State for Social Affairs is having a meeting with Number Ten's Chief Political Advisor as there have been press rumours that the Minister is to be sacked. The Minister is told that none of these stories have leaked from Number Ten. However, now they're out there, Number Ten would look weak not to sack him, so sacked he is. His replacement as Minister for Social Affairs takes office. And so starts The Thick Of It, featuring an ensemble of the best British comic actors, improvising scripts from the sharpest British comedy writers
