AMC is heading a Little Bit Alexis.
Annie Murphy, identified as the incredibly very well-traveled Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek, has landed pretty the next gig. She’ll be actively playing Allison, the direct in Kevin Can F*** Himself, a dark comedy about a usual sitcom spouse who escapes her usual sitcom spouse life and “discovers her rage.”
For every AMC, “Kevin Can F*** Himself probes the top secret life of a form of lady we all grew up believing we realized: the sitcom spouse (Murphy). It appears to split tv conference and request what the world appears like by means of her eyes. Alternating in between one-digital camera realism and multi-digital camera comedy, the formats will notify a single an additional as we imagine what happens when the sitcom spouse escapes her confines, and usually takes the direct in her possess life.”
The sequence, designed by Valerie Armstrong, will consist of 8 hour-extensive episodes. Rashida Jones and Will McCormack serve as executive producers. Craig DiGregorio will serve as showrunner.
The clearly show has been in the performs for a whilst, and seems to be at the very least a minimal bit impressed by Kevin Can Wait, the Kevin James-starring CBS sitcom that unceremoniously killed off Kevin’s spouse, played by Erinn Hayes, and brought in Leah Remini (Kevin James’ previous sitcom spouse) to swap her. The clearly show was then canceled just after a single spouse-significantly less time.
Schitt’s Creek is at the moment in its sixth and remaining time on Pop, with Alexis delving into a career in PR just after a profitable crow-relevant stunt at her mother’s crow-relevant film premiere.
