I love the Entertainment Weekly covers this week that show Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the shoes, shirt, blouse and suits of each other's presidential character. It reminded me how lucky Baltimore is to have these remarkable actors making two of the best series ever on television here in Baltimore in 2014. One of the reasons they are so great is because they are so fearless as actors. Dressing up as each other's presidential TV character (Frank Underwood and Selina Meyer)

If you like Julia Louis-Dreyfus, you do not want to miss "Picture Paris," a quirky 30-minute film playing throughout the month on HBO. The film about a middle-aged couple trying to navigate the life passage they face as their last child leaves for college is written and directed by Brad Hall, husband of Louis-Dreyfus. She is in virtually every frame and appears to be having loads of fun playing a woman who becomes obsessed with all things French. At 30 minutes, don't expect a big film.

Here's a first-look at the HBO satire, "VEEP," starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and it's a winner. The series from Armando Iannucci ("In The Loop") was filmed in Baltimore last year and debuts April 22 on the premium cable channel. I'm working on a magazine story about the series. It includes a set visit and interviews with Iannucci, Louis-Dreyfus, executive producer Frank Rich and others. This trailer makes me feel like my sense during the set visit -- that this was a smart, savvy and special TV series -- was right.

Standing in a pile of construction rubble on a cold and dirty location set at the Lord Baltimore Hotel here in January, I didn't know what to expect from Season 3 of HBO's "Veep. " Everyone in the cast and crew, including star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, seemed to be suffering from a chest-busting virus that was signaled by the most awful-sounding cough. Grim doesn't start to describe the mood as they prepped for the filming of a scene featuring a make-believe employment conference. Director Chris Addington suddenly found himself after a post-lunch conversation with Louis-Dreyfus confronted with the need for a serious rewrite of the scene he was about to shoot.

Here at the editorial board of The Sun, we like to give Columbia a little good-natured ribbing from time to time. James Rouse's planned community has gotten enough critical accolades in the national press since its opening in 1967 - for its efforts at integration of races and classes, suburban amenities like pools and paths and even its stab at interdenominational harmony with shared "interfaith centers" - that we assumed it could handle a few laughs...

"Deep" and "sitcom" are not words often used in the same sentence. But a visit to the "VEEP" soundstage in Columbia gave a glimpse of the larger cultural power of this savvy satire from HBO, returning for its second season Sunday night. I also came away dazzled by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who last year won an Emmy as best comedic actress for her portrayal of Vice President Selina Meyer. "VEEP" drills as far down into the state of the national psyche as any TV comedy has in the past 30 years.
