Amy Sedaris stars as JD LeGrand in ‘Seriously Distracted,’ PopSugar’s debut web series.
Amy will star in PopSugar’s first-ever scripted series! ‘Seriously Distracted’ debuts next Tuesday, October 21, on PopSugar.com, AboveAverage.com and both companies’ YouTube channels. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The eight-episode series stars Amy Sedaris as JD LeGrand, the head of New York publicity firm LeGrand PR. Although the firm is one celebrity client away from making it big, LeGrand’s employees are constantly distracted by their pop culture obsessions, which range from Tinder and Scandal to James Franco and SoulCycle.”
Eight episodes from the series’ first season will roll out weekly. You can watch a preview of ‘Seriously Distracted’ on YouTube here.

And don’t forget to catch Amy on Jimmy Fallon tomorrow night (Friday, August 22) on NBC!
Super exciting news! Amy has teamed up with the ridiculously fun, New York-based dishware purveyor Fishs Eddy to release a line of kitchenware and entertaining supplies! The [cheerful and, of course, adorable] collection, entitled ‘I Like You,’ features juice glasses, tumblers, glass bowls, dish towels, a platter, paper plates and more with patterns taken from Amy’s 2013 fabric line. The collection is already available online at Fishs Eddy’s website (although I don’t think everything has been listed yet at time of writing–I know there’s at least still a popcorn bowl yet to come). I believe it will hit stores next month, though I’m fairly certain that it’s already out at Fishs Eddy’s NYC store. Check it out!
Just a heads up, Amy is scheduled to appear on Jimmy Fallon next Friday night, August 22 (11:30/10:30C on NBC)!
Okay, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I have a few updates, yay!
First, Amy shares lots of fantastic tips on rabbit care and what to consider about owning a pet rabbit in this new interview on style.com. I actually have my own ancient 13-14 year-old mini rex rabbit (who happens to have a recipe named after him in Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People), and yes, bunnies absolutely are the best pets. 🙂 And yeah, it’s true what she says–that rabbits will basically own you and destroy all your stuff, but you can’t help but to love ’em!

Now, in totally unrelated news, Amy will be returning to two renewed shows! Amazon’s political comedy Alpha House was renewed for a second season, and Amy will once again be joining the cast–presumably reprising her role as a senator’s wife. Prime subscribers can watch the entire first season here (even though she was guest cast, Amy appeared in most epsiodes of season one).
Last but not least, Adult Swim renewed its gothic-horror-comedy/soap opera/mini series The Heart, She Holler for a third season. Amy originally joined the cast in 2013, taking over the role originally played by Kristen Schaal. She’ll be returning as Hurshe Heartshe–a sleazy, white trash woman who’s constantly plotting to take over the town.
Oh, and one more! If you missed them while they were in theaters… Amy has small parts in Chef and Ping-Pong Summer, both of which are coming to Blu-Ray/DVD next month, and they’re both really fun flicks. Check them out!
