Trivia[edit | edit source]
-Veep has gone through three different West Wing sets. The first one was used in seasons two and three. It featured Ben's office, Selina's West Wing office, Kent's office, and a teal-colored conference room. It did not include an Oval Office. The second set was used in season four. It was a bit bigger, and featured the Oval Office, Kent & Ben's offices, a Press Briefing room, a Press Bullpen, a Lobby, and a Roosevelt Room. The third set was used in season five, as they had to change sets when the show moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles. The third set featured everything used in season four, plus Jonah's office, a break room, and extended hallways.
-Veep did not have an Oval Office set built for Midterms. The Oval Office set used was rented from House of Cards, a show that was also being filmed in Baltimore around the same time.
