CHICAGO – Apparently, HBO likes to give its news in bulk. The premium network announced debut dates for a new HBO feature film, the new season of a hit series, and the premiere of two new series to the network.

“Game Change,” the new HBO film, will debut on Sunday March 10 at 8 p.m. CST. The film stars Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, and Ed Harris and follows the story of John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. Moore portrays Sarah Palin, Harris plays McCain, and Harrelson takes the role of Steve Schmidt, McCain’s senior campaign strategist.

Also announced was the second season debut date for the hit series “Game of Thrones.” The first of the ten-episode second season will premiere on Sunday, April 1 at 8:00 p.m. CST. The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s popular book series “A Song of Ice and Fire.”

Finally, HBO announced the premiere dates for two new series: “Girls” and “Veep.” “Girls” starts its ten-episode first season on Sunday, April 15 at 9:30 p.m. CST and “Veep” begins its eight-episode season a week later, Sunday, April 22 at 9 p.m. CST. “Girls,” created by and starring Lena Dunham (“Tiny Furniture”), follows the humiliations and triumphs of a group of girls all in their early 20s, while “Veep” follows a senator (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) who becomes vice president, only to find the job is not what she was expecting.
