Amy Sedaris is headed to truTV. The network recently ordered 10 episodes of an untitled half-hour scripted comedy series from Sedaris, which will start production sometime this summer. Here’s more info on the show from truTV’s press release:
In the Untitled Amy Sedaris Project, Sedaris will apply her sincere yet distinctive brand of silliness to a one-of-a-kind mash up of hospitality, variety and talk show formats. Through her imaginative characters and unique point of view, the series will showcase Sedaris’ diverse but necessary homemaking skills, from Frenching beans, to gutting a trout, to crocheting miniature sweaters, to entertaining business-men. Each episode of the series will revolve around a traditional theme – such as Fish! Wood!, or Grieving! – and will seamlessly combine Sedaris’ humor and talents as a crafter, chef, baker and hostess.
Sedaris co-executive produces the show alongside PFFR’s Alyson Levy, John Lee, and Vernon Chatman. “I’ve been doing this show in my head for years,” Sedaris said on the news. “It will be terrific to get it on TV so I can free up some wiggle room up in my skull.”
