The Oxygen network – home to such television treasures as Killer Couples, I’m Having Their Baby, and My Shopping Addiction – is attempting to rebrand with a new slate of original programming, including a docu-series called Funny Girls, THR reports. Here’s the slightly cringeworthy description of Funny Girls per Oxygen’s press release:
This funny new docu-series series showcases up-and-coming female comediennes living in Los Angeles as they strive to break the glass ceiling in the male-dominated comedy business. It’s a profession where women fight for survival of the funniest, and these sassy young comediennes will give viewers a peek inside their lives as they struggle to balance their career, relationships and friendships in and outside the industry. Their journey is anything but perfect and these non-conforming women share their uniquely humorous perspectives that come with the pursuit of comedic fame.
