TV show description:
A semi-autobiographical “traumedy” based on the life of comedian Tig Notaro, who created the series with Diablo Cody, the One Mississippi TV show ponders what happens when you must go home again — whether or not your truly can.
The story centers on Tig Bavaro (Notaro), a Los Angeles radio host. Upon the sudden death of her mother, Caroline (Kihlstedt), Tig returns to home Bay Saint Lucille, Mississippi. There, she must come to terms with her monumental loss, while dealing with health challenges of her own.
Back in Mississippi, Tig feels like a fish out of water. Her brother Remy (Harpster) and stepfather Bill (Rothman) may be there to fill the gaps, but they’re not exactly adept at doing so.
The series explores the laughter and tears of family ties that bind, as Tig grapples with her mom’s death and comes to terms with her past.
