Watch: New York Editor Frank Rich Discusses His Role in Making HBO’s ‘Veep’

Longtime political columnist Frank Rich, now an editor at New York, recently sat down for an interview with mediabistroTV and discussed his role in the making of the new HBO series “Veep.”

“Veep,” which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the U.S.’s flustered second-in-command, includes a character whose “Beltway Butcher” nickname is an homage to Rich’s reputation as the “Butcher of Broadway” during his time as chief theater critic for The New York Times (video below).
