truTV today announced a 10-episode season two greenlight of its critically-acclaimed, half-hour variety sketch series, At Home with Amy Sedaris, co-created by Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello (Strangers with Candy). Academy Award(R)-winning production company A24 (Lady Bird, 2 Dope Queens) is on board to produce the sophomore season of the scripted series, which will go into production later this year. In At Home with Amy Sedaris, Sedaris invites viewers into her delicious world, showcasing her unique, distinctive brand of hospitality and homemaking in weekly themed episodes which feature imaginative characters, how-to demonstrations, special guests, and more.
Hailed “a disturbing and delicious beast” by The New York Times and “colorful, good-hearted and deeply, profoundly deranged” by Rolling Stone, At Home with Amy Sedaris helped to expand truTV’s reach during its season one run, with more than a quarter of the audience comprised of new viewers. The critically-lauded series – which earned a perfect 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes – offered a comedic oasis for viewers through “laughs, comfort and catharsis” (Salon). As Buzzfeed said best, “Amy Sedaris is the weirdo the world needs right now.”
A prolific actress, author, comedian and rabbit educator, Sedaris has appeared often on screen, both large and small. She is the co-creator, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello, of the hit cult comedy series Strangers with Candy and half of the Obie-winning “Talent Family” playwright team (with her brother, David). She is also the author of two best-selling books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.
Season two of At Home with Amy Sedaris will be executive produced by Sedaris and A24’s Ravi Nandan. The series goes into production this summer and the 10-episode first season is currently available on the truTV app and On Demand.”
