Amy Sedaris is Headed Back to TV


Amy Sedaris is returning to the small screen (again, after Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) for an untitled, half-hour comedy from TruTV — which was also created by Sedaris. The Strangers with Candy actress will star in “a mashup of hospitality, variety and talk-show formats. Each episode of the series will revolve around a traditional theme, such as fish, wood or grieving and will combine Sedaris’ humor and talents as a crafter, chef, baker and hostess,” according to THR. “I’ve been doing this show in my head for years. It will be terrific to get it on TV so I can free up some wiggle room up in my skull,” Sedaris told press. Since her big turn as Jerri Blank in the popular cult series Strangers with Candy, the actress has been doing spot roles on various series in recent years, including Difficult People and Horace and Pete. She’s also voiced the character of Princess Carolyn in the Netflix series BoJack Horseman.
