In 2015, Tig Notaro has seen both a Netflix documentary and an HBO special. In July, it was announced the comedian would be expanding her streaming reach with an Amazon show, and the pilot just got the green light to series.
Amazon Studios announced yesterday that One Mississippi, a semi-autobiographical series about Notaro returning to Bay Saint Lucille, Mississippi, after her mother’s death, got a series order. The series is co-executive produced by Notaro, Louis C.K., and Diablo Cody, and will star Hotwives of Orlando‘s Casey Wilson and Transparent‘s Noah Harpster.
Amazon also renewed The Man in the High Castle, Hand of God, Tumble Leaf, and Red Oaks for second seasons, and gave the green light to half-hour series Highston (directed by Little Miss Sunshine‘s Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton) and Z: The Beginning of Everything (starring Christina Ricci) and hour series Good Girls Revolt and Patriot, as well as three new kids’ shows.
Amazon original series Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle were just nominated for Golden Globes.
