Netflix Orders Maria Bamford Comedy Series with Mitch Hurwitz Producing

Netflix has ordered the comedy series “Lady Dynamite,” which stars actress-comedian Maria Bamford and is based on what she’s accepted to be “her life.”

The occasionally surreal 13 episodes of the single-camera comedy are said to “tell the story of a woman who loses – and then finds – her s–t.”

Bamford is producing the series with “South Park’s” Pam Brady and “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz. Hurwitz signed a lucrative multiyear production deal with Netflix in 2014, which may result in more “Arrested Development” episodes.

Lady Dynamite” is a Netflix production.
