Here’s the first trailer for One Mississippi, Tig Notaro’s autobiographical series for Amazon executive produced by Louis CK. It’s based on the much-recounted year in which she was treated for breast cancer with a double mastectomy, contracted a serious intestinal disease, was dumped by her girlfriend, and had her mother suddenly pass away. You know, comedy stuff. But the bones of the experience made for one of the best, most intense standup albums of the past decade with Tig Notaro: Live.
The pilot for One Mississippi was made available last November as part of Amazon’s public pilots program; the full season is arriving on September 9th.
