“Carolyn, Meredith, Aurora and Jennifer have a devotion to red wine, dry shampoo and smart, relevant comedy that made us fall in love with their show the minute we saw it,” said IFC President Jennifer Caserta. “The ladies have set a high bar as the first and only all-female sketch comedy troupe that also writes, produces and stars in their own show, so we are especially proud to bring their third season to the IFC audience which has clearly demonstrated they want more!”
