Amy Schumer is returning to television, but not for the long-delayed season of Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central. Hulu announced today that it has inked a first-look deal with the stand-up comedian, which will kick off with a ten-episode, half-hour comedy series titled Love, Beth starring Schumer as the titular character. Not a whole lot is known about the series yet, but Schumer is credited as the creator, writer, director, executive producer, and star. Kim Caramele and Kevin Kane, who worked as producers on Schumer’s Comedy Central show as well as her Netflix special Growing, are also executive producing the Hulu show, which is slated to debut sometime next year.

Schumer has been very busy recently. In the last two years alone she’s gotten married, had her first child, starred in a movie, hosted Saturday Night Live, landed a podcast deal with Spotify, attended protests in D.C., released that stand-up special on Netflx, and announced that she’ll star in a film adaptation of the Tony Award–winning play The Humans, produced by Scott Rudin. The fourth season of Inside Amy Schumer wrapped up its run on Comedy Central back in June 2016, so her Hulu show will mark her return to a starring TV series role after a four-year absence.
