The worlds of Baltimore and TV politics met Thursday when HBO's "VEEP" came to City Hall. The series that stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus is filming season two in and around the city.

"It was a thrill to visit the VEEP set today," Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a statement. "This show, along with others recently filmed in Baltimore, are a boost to our economy and our sense of pride in the city. It will be great seeing our historic chamber on TV."
