(CBS News) Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns to TV Sunday as a former senator who just took on a new job - vice president of the United States.

The HBO comedy series "Veep," created by Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, debuts at 10 p.m. It is one of the highlights of a relatively quiet week in entertainment.

On the big screen, movie openings this week include "Marley," Kevin Macdonald's documentary on the life and music of reggae legend Bob Marley ("No Woman, No Cry" and "Get up, Stand Up").

Also opening Friday is "Think Like a Man," a comedy about four friends who follow the relationship advice of commentator and radio host Steve Harvey. It stars Chris Brown and Gabrielle Union. Also look for the horror film "The Moth Diaries" by director Marry Harron of "American Psycho" fame.

DVD releases Tuesday will include the Tom Cruise action-thriller "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol."

Music lovers can look forward to the release Tuesday of Jason Mraz's fourth studio album, "Love is a Four-Letter Word." Also out that day is a new album called "California 37" by the "Calling All Angels" band Train.

Talk show host Ricki Lake's "Untitled Memoirs" hits stores on Tuesday, as do new titles from two best-selling authors. "The Witness" is the latest work from romance novelist Nora Roberts who has more than 200 books to her credit.

"What Doesn't Kill You" is the new book by Iris Johansen, who has written more than 50 crime and romance books.
