truTV Announces New Scripted Comedy from Amy Sedaris

truTV has greenlit an all-new scripted series, still untitled, from comedian Amy Sedaris (“Strangers with Candy,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”). In the Untitled Amy Sedaris Project, Sedaris will showcase Sedaris’ diverse but necessary homemaking skills, from Frenching beans, to gutting a trout, to crocheting miniature sweaters, to entertaining business-men. Each episode of the series will revolve around a traditional theme, such as: Fish! Wood! or Grieving! and will combine Sedaris’ humor and talents as a crafter, chef, baker and hostess.

truTV has ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the series.

The Untitled Amy Sedaris Project is produced by PFFR with executive producers Sedaris, Alyson Levy, John Lee and Vernon Chatman. The series will go into production this summer.
