Oh my gosh, you guys, I have something seriously exciting to report… TruTV has greenlit a scripted comedy created by and starring Amy! YES! It has been a long time coming… AMY IS GETTING HER OWN SHOW AGAIN! Here’s what we know so far:
Tru ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the yet-untitled series
It sounds like the show will be at least somewhat based on Amy’s bestselling books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People
Each episode will center around a theme such as “Wood!,” “Fish!” or “Grieving!”
Production begins THIS SUMMER (! – which means we could be seeing this next fall or mid-season?!)
Tru has already made a placeholder page for the show on their website, which says, “Amy Sedaris cordially invites you into her home, where she will show off diverse but necessary homemaking skills, from death-bed etiquette, to gutting a fish, to crocheting miniature sweaters for a mice infestation, to entertaining your husband’s business associates.” (This make it feel so real! It’s really happening!)
Full details here! And I’ll, of course, continue to post more info as I find out. Hooray!
Long time, no post, huh? Wow, sorry about that! Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that you can catch Amy on Going Deep with David Rees this Wednesday, November 11, at 10 PM (ET) on the Equire Network.
As an added bonus, Amy will also appear on Billy on the Street this Thursday, November 12, at 10:30 pm (ET) on TruTV!
David Letterman’s final Late Show is just around the bend, but the good news is that Amy Sedaris will return for one more appearance this Wednesday, April 15! This will be the end of an era, but we can hope that Stephen Colbert will continue to have Amy on as a regular guest once he takes over. Fingers crossed!
In the meantime, enjoy one of my all-time favorite YouTube finds… Amy Sedaris vs. David Letterman. Love!
Sorry it’s been SO long since I’ve posted anything! Just wanted to pop in and mention that Amy Sedaris will be on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tomorrow night–Friday, February 20. I assume she’ll probably be on to promote David Cross’ new film, HITS, in which she has a small part. Good times!
If you’re going to be in New York City this Sunday, December 14, you’re in luck!
Amy will be signing copies of ‘I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence’ and ‘Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People’ at William Morris Endeavor’s Gimme Books holiday pop-up shop located at 2 Rivington Street, NYC! She will be signing from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Later that day, beginning at 4:30 p.m., Amy will be on hand at Fishs Eddy (889 Broadway) to help with your holiday gift wrapping! This is the perfect time to snap up some of her adorable kitchen and hosting wares as gifts–Amy will even wrap them for you!
Amy is scheduled to make what is likely her final ‘Colbert Report‘ appearance this Wednesday, December 3 (11:30pm ET on Comedy Central). I’m guessing this will be her last appearance on Colbert, since the final ‘Report’ will air December 18, when Colbert will prepare to take over ‘The Late Show’ when David Letterman retires next year… which means… was last week Amy’s LAST EVER appearance on Letterman?! Hopefully not, but I guess it could be. It feels like the end of an era!
And just as a reminder, you can catch Amy on ‘Watch What Happens Live‘ this Thursday night, December 4, on Bravo (11pm ET), and on Adult Swim’s horror-soap opera, ‘The Heart She Holler‘ on weeknights starting TONIGHT (12:30am ET).
You can also catch Amy on season 3 of The Heart, She Holler, Adult Swim’s bizarre horror-soap opera. The series will air every weeknight at 12:30 am ET beginning December 1. Amy returns as the psychotic Hurshe Heartshe, who’s constantly plotting to take over the town.
Amy is scheduled to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman tomorrow night, Monday, November 24! (11:35 pm ET on CBS.) Let’s hope that she continues to visit the Late Show once Stephen Colbert takes over upon Letterman’s retirement next year!
