Painfully funny comic Maria Bamford is finally getting her own show. Netflix ordered 13 half-hour episodes of the single-camera comedy Lady Dynamite, based on different periods of her life. According to the streaming giant, the show is expected to tell "the story of a woman who loses — and then finds — her shit" in a refracted, surrealistic way, which sounds in line with her weird web series, The Maria Bamford Show. Bamford will be producing alongside Mitch Hurwitz and Pam Brady. Just when we started to get a little worried that Netflix was running out of good ideas, they reel us back in with this gem. This is basically as good as juicing bonsai trees and sitting in your truth.
