Maria Bamford, the wonderfully kooky comedian, is starring in the next Netflix comedy series that is semi-based on her real life, Lady Dynamite. Re-teaming with Arrested Development’s Mitch Hurwitz after her scene stealing role in Season 4 of AD, Bamford plays a slightly more surreal version of herself as she tries to become an actress in Los Angeles, had to be hospitalized for bi-polar disorder and eventually got to where she is now as a self deprecating actress and stand up. Bamford looks hilarious as always and there seems to be a great roster of guest stars including Ana Gasteyer, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, Jason Mantzoukas, Dean Cain, June Diane Raphael, Andy Daly, Jenny Slate, Ed Begley Jr and more. All episodes arrive on May 20th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
