ANNAPOLIS, MD. (AP) - HBO will film a pilot episode in Maryland for a series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Gov. Martin O’Malley made the announcement on Tuesday.

Filming for the show titled “VEEP” starts in late February in Baltimore.

The show is a comedy set near the White House. Louis-Dreyfus will play a former senator who has become vice president. The actress, who turns 50 on Thursday, attended school in the Washington area and is best-known for her portrayal of Elaine Benes on TV’s “Seinfeld.”

The Maryland Film Office estimates that production could have an economic impact of more than $6 million. The film office also says production could create more than 700 jobs for Maryland crew and actors.
