Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Star in Husband Brad Hall’s HBO Short

Here’s some good news for HBO viewers who are missing Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep‘s off-season: The actress will be back on the network in less than two weeks, starring in a short film directed by her husband, actor/writer/producer Brad Hall. Called “Picture Paris,” it finds Louis-Dreyfus playing a suburban mother who combats empty nest syndrome after her youngest child leaves for college by planning an elaborate trip to Paris with her husband. But when she arrives in France, the romantic getaway isn’t exactly what she’d imagined. The film premieres Monday, December 17th at 9 pm and will replay frequently on HBO and HBO2 through mid-January.
