Saturday Night Live’s Aidy Bryant has a very busy 2019 ahead of her, thanks in large part to a starring role in Hulu’s upcoming comedy Shrill. The streaming network dropped the first full trailer today to get you excited. Ordered to series last year, the show is based on Lindy West’s 2016 memoir of the same name and centers on Bryant as Annie, who is “trying to make it as a journalist while juggling bad boyfriends, sick parents, and a perfectionist boss, while the world around her deems her not good enough because of her weight. She starts to realize that she’s as good as anyone else, and acts on it.” As the trailer reveals, Annie realizes she’s good when she writes her first viral blog post, which ends up being such a hit that she experiences the unique honor of getting her very own comment troll.
Bryant co-wrote the series with West and Alexandra Rushfield (Love, Parks and Recreation), and both Elizabeth Banks and Lorne Michaels serve as executive producers. The cast includes Lolly Adefope, Luka Jones, Daniel Stern, Ian Owens, and John Cameron Mitchell, while another SNL alum, Julia Sweeney, plays Annie’s mom. Check out the trailer above featuring Bryant, Jo Firestone, and some extremely steamy photos of stand-up and Vulture’s very own Drag Race podcast co-host Joel Kim Booster, then watch the rest when the series hits Hulu on March 15.
