New HBO series for Charlie Kaufman and Catherine Keener

Yes, go ahead and blink at that headline, but it’s true: Charlie Kaufman (“Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” and the upcoming and thoroughly weird-sounding “Frank or Francis“) will write and direct a new HBO series, to star the ever-wonderful Catherine Keener. The half-hour comedy, which does not appear to have a title yet, is described as “an exploration of one day in a woman’s life and how the events leading up to it can affect, or not, the reality in which she lives.” I can see how that would be kind of Kaufmanesque. The project is “fast-tracked,” which I guess means we’ll see it before too long, but no date has been announced.
Speaking of HBO and female-centered comedies, anyone else watching “Veep”? I love the idea of it (Julia Louis-Dreyfus! The director/writer of “In the Loop”! Bungling staffers!) and I’m sticking with it for now, but I keep wanting it to be funnier than it is. I suspect it works better for people familiar with the D.C. political scene; maybe there are some in-jokes that I’m not getting. Anyone a fan?
