HBO has given the greenlight for a new comedy series ‘Somebody Somewhere’ starring Bridget Everett.
The comedian and actress has starred in Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, AJ and the Queen, Camping and Twelve Forever. She also appeared in the films Permission, Patti Cake$ and Sex and the City.
The show will be based on her time living and growing up in Kansas. HBO describes the show as “Sam Miller (played by Everett) is a true Kansan on the surface, but, beneath it all, struggles to fit the hometown mold. As she grapples with loss and acceptance, singing is Sam’s saving grace and leads her on a journey to discover herself and a community of outsiders that don’t fit in but don’t give up. Somebody Somewhere shows that finding your people, and finding your voice, is possible. Anywhere. Somewhere”.
Everett will also executive produce with Hannah Bos (HBO’s “High Maintenance”), Paul Thureen (“Driveways”), Carolyn Strauss (HBO’s Chernobyl), Patricia Breen (HBO’s Betty) and Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass, Mel Eslyn and Tyler Romary.
Bos and Thureen created the show.
HBO has no premiere date for the series.
