Notaro will co-write the comedy with Cody, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Juno. The single-camera comedy will be inspired by Notaro's recent battle with breast cancer and the death of her mother.
"Tig Notaro has just recovered from an abdominal disease that has left her gaunt, wasted, exhausted and pretty much stripped of everything except her finely honed sense of the absurd," reads the logline for the project. "Abruptly summoned home to Pass Christian, Miss., to take her ailing mother off life support, Tig finds herself dealing with her clingy girlfriend, her dysfunctional Gulf Coast family and the loss of the one person who held everything together."
The untitled comedy was originally developed at FX before moving to Amazon, where a pilot was ordered.
Are you excited about the project?
