We have more laughs for you this month! Our dead pilot is Eight from Alison Bennett (You’re The Worst, Single Parents). After a whirlwind romance that resulted in a baby and a wedding (in that order), children of divorce Jillian and Trevor attempt to carve out their own family’s identity, with eight grandparents there to offer eight million different opinions. In Andrew’s interview, Alison talks about her humble beginnings at UCB New York and how she got her first job on one of Amazon’s first shows. She talks about her experience writing on You’re the Worst and what it’s like to be a television writer in the middle of a pandemic. A great conversation with a great writer! Enjoy!
Eight stars Anna Camp as Jillian, Langston Kerman as Trevor, Kelly Marie Tran as Alicia, John C. McGinley as Rick, Larry Wilmore as Donnie, Nancy Lenehan as Carolyn, Mimi Kennedy as Lori, Ayden Mayeri as Pam/Stephanie, Craig Cackowski as Ace, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
