In addition to the first observation and increasingly precise
measurements of the Higgs Boson, the LHC provides access to an
unprecedented number of W and Z bosons.  Precise measurements of their
production and decay can significantly improve our knowledge of the
proton structure, perturbative QCD, the electroweak parameters of the
Standard Model, and serve as a possible indirect window to new
physics.  I will discuss experimental and theoretical prospects and
novel analysis techniques for current and upcoming measurements, as
well as new detector capabilities for HL-LHC.
