Watch: First Trailers For HBO's Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas Drama 'Confirmation' & 'Veep' Season 5

With the election cycle in full swing, you’ll also have plenty of small screen entertainment to keep the politically charged energy brewing. Netflix drops the new season of “House Of Cards” next month, and later this spring, HBO has a couple of their own projects up their sleeve.

First, on April 16th, will be “Confirmation,” a dramatization of Anita Hall‘s battle against Clarence Thomas during his Supreme Court hearings. Rick Famuyia (“Dope“) directs the cast which stars Kerry Washington, Wendell Pierce, Greg Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Eric Stonestreet, and Jennifer Hudson, in the film that details the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings, which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way we think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights, and modern-day race relations.

On a lighter note, “Veep” season 5 arrives on April 24th, with Julia Louis-Dreyfuss‘ Selina Meyer still reckoning with the idiocy of Washington, D.C. Check out the trailers for both below.
