Emmy Award-winning “Schitt’s Creek” star Annie Murphy is rather less Alexis in her newest lead function for AMC and a bit extra generic sitcom spouse gone off-script (and sanguinary). During its Television Critics’ Association Winter Press Tour, the community launched a trailer for the genre-busting darkish dramedy “Kevin Can F**ok Himself,” premiering someday this summer season.
As evidenced within the trailer, the collection breaks tv conventions by probing the key lifetime of the sitcom housewife archetype and asking what the world would seem like by way of her eyes when she snaps and takes the lead in her personal life. Alternating between single-camera realism and multi-camera comedy, the codecs will inform each other as we see Annie Murphy’s character (Allison) notice that what she actually desires is to cease taking part in good and to start out killing her husband.
“Kevin Can F**ok Himself” hails from ‘Parks and Recreation” common and “Hot Girls Wanted” producer Rashida Jones, who acts as an govt producer, and creator Valerie Armstrong, recognized for her work on “Lodge 49” and “SEAL Team.” Will McCormack can even govt produce. Craig DiGregorio is the showrunner and govt producer on the 8 hour-long episode present.
Starring alongside Murphy are Eric Peterson and Mary Hollis Inboden. During at this time’s TCA panel, the celebrities joked that Murphy’s followers could also be disenchanted to see the “Schitt’s Creek” lead, who was usually decked out in some bohemian stylish ensemble all through the Canadian present’s profitable six-season run, dressed-down in her new function. Per Murphy, viewers can count on to see her on the small display screen in a pair of frumpish, hard-to-slip-on maroon winter boots so much. (Alexis would by no means.)
Murphy is represented by Gersh and The Gary Goddard Agency.
