All the yes: Maria Bamford is getting her own show on Netflix
Netflix continues to be nothing short of the best. What’s the next beautiful gift they’re bringing us? Oh, just a comedy series from Maria Bamford with Arrested Development‘s Mitch Horwitz producing. So much YES.
Bamford’s series, Lady Dynamite, has a 13-episode order and is describe as being based on her life. Here’s some more about the premise, courtesy of the Boston Herald, “The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods inspired by the actor/comedian’s life, tell the story of a woman who loses – and then finds – her [life.]” Oh yes, please. Sign us up to binge this one.
You might best know Bamford from her amazing webseries, The Maria Bamford Show or her special, Maria Bamford: the special special special. She’s also got not one but TWO Comedy Central specials, and has lent her voice to Adventure Time, BoJack Horseman, and roles in Arrested Development and Fresh Off The Boat.
Lady Dynamite will be written by Horwitz and Pam Brady, who comes to the show from South Park. And then of course Bamford will start in it and make us laugh while stealing our hearts, too.
