Aidy Bryant has been making a name for herself in the world of comedy, starring on Saturday Night Live for the past few seasons. Now, she is getting her own sitcom, which arrives this spring. We have a first look with a handful of new images, which give a pretty good idea what we're in store for.
From Executive Producers Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks comes Shrill, a comedy series starring Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live) as Annie, a fat young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body. Annie is trying to start her career while juggling bad boyfriends, a sick parent, and a perfectionist boss. The series also stars, Lolly Adefope, Luka Jones, Ian Owens and John Cameron Mitchell.
We have the first official images for Hulu's original series, premiering all 6 episodes Friday, March 15th, only on Hulu. When the morning after pill fails and aspiring journalist Annie winds up pregnant, she weighs the pros and cons of having a child with her hook-up buddy. The decision-making process forces Annie, with help from her best friend Fran, to figure out who she is and what she wants from her life.
Annie's writing her first article, going on her first date with Ryan and, finally, asking more from the people in her life than she has before. Things are looking up, until an internet troll appears and tries to drag her self-esteem back down where it started.
Annie isn't going to let her troll ruin all the success she's had recently. So, she invites Ryan to a work event -excited to introduce her boyfriend into her life.
In the images, we get to see Annie & Fran attend the Fat Babe Pool Party. Annie is so empowered by the experience and so furious with her boss, Gabe, that she posts a body positive article to the paper's website that explains exactly what it's like to be a fat woman in today's world.
