Amy Sedaris to Star as a PR Boss in Web Series ‘Seriously Distracted’

By

THR reports that Above Average has teamed up with entertainment/lifestyle news site PopSugar to produce a brand new web series with Amy Sedaris set to star. Titled Seriously Distracted, the series follows Sedaris as JD LeGrand, “the head of New York publicity firm LeGrand PR. Although the firm is one celebrity client away from making it big, LeGrand’s employees are constantly distracted by their pop culture obsessions, which range from Tinder and Scandal to James Franco and SoulCycle.” The project makes PopSugar’s first attempt at scripted comedy – a move inspired by the company’s discussions with Above Average about potentially collaborating on a “female-driven comedy” together. Seriously Distracted premieres on PopSugar and Above Average on October 21st with new episodes every week.
