TruTV greenlights Amy Sedaris series!

"AmySedarisILikeYouSandwiche

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!

Catch Amy on Match Game!

Amy will be a panelist on Match Game! You’ll be able to catch it this Wednesday night (January 11) on ABC. Check out this bonus round clip.

Amy on go90 ‘Thanksgiving’ series

Oh my gosh, I am so behind! Like, really, really behind. I really apologize for the lack of updates for the past… erm, way too long of a time. Wow. Sorry about that! In the meantime, you can catch Amy in a new go90 8-part web series, Thanksgiving. And I swear I’ll get better about keeping this site up in the next year.

Amy returns to ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ on Netflix!

Amy is back as Mini Kanisis for season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt now streaming on Netflix! And better yet, this season she’s returning as a cast member (not just a cameo!).

Amy on Going Deep; Billy on the Street

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!

Check out a clip from Going Deep…

Amy to appear on Letterman one last time

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!

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 on ‘The Colbert Report’

Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report

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).
