Tig Bavaro is signing off. Amazon has cancelled its One Mississippi TV show after two seasons. The second and final season of the series from Tig Notaro and Diablo Cody premiered on Amazon on September 8, 2017.
An Amazon Prime Video TV series, One Mississippi stars Tig Notaro, Noah Harpster, John Rothman, Stephanie Allynne, Rya Kihlstedt, Carly Jibson, Beth Grant, Carol Mansell, Casey Wilson, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Adora Dei. A semi-autobiographical “traumedy” based on Notaro’s life, One Mississippi ponders what happens when you must go home again — whether or not your truly can.
“This is part of a move towards bigger, wider-audience series,” an Amazon insider told Deadline.
Notaro’s semi-autobiographical One Mississippi has garnered strong reviews (100% on Rotten Tomatoes for Season 2), and the series also made headlines for its depiction of sexual misconduct that later was linked to the Louis C.K. scandal. The disgraced comedian was an executive producer on the series (in name only).
Amazon, which is on the hunt for big, broad drama hits, has dramatically pared down its comedy series slate, once populated heavily of quirky, underrated half-hour shows. Besides Globe-winning Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and just-renewed freshman hit The Tick, all other existing comedy series have been canceled, and the streaming platform also recently opted not to pick up any of the three comedy pilots from its most recent fall pilot season.
