According to Deadline, Comedy Central has picked Another Period, a comedy pilot created by and starring Natasha Leggero. Additionally, the network ordered a one-hour standup special from the comedian, which will shoot in April at Boston’s Wilbur Theater. Leggero was a standout performer at Comedy Central’s hit James Franco Roast and managed to stir up thefirst controversy of 2014, so it’s no surprise that Comedy Central is eager to milk her for all she’s — that sounds dirty, doesn’t it?
Another Period is described as a Victorian-era reality show spoof and will co-star Garfunkel and Oates’ Riki Lindhome. The show follows two heiresses who have “nothing to offer the world, but who have so much money that it doesn’t matter.” Leggero and Lindhome star as the oldest Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice, “who care only about how they look, what parties they are invited to and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902.”
We can’t wait to watch Leggero work her magic in a petticoat and chemise or see all the excellent updos that she’ll surely be rocking. Few comedians, let alone normal women, can pull off the beehive-inspired hairstyles she dons on your average Tuesday. With that said, let’s have a moment of silence for the women in our lives who make us laugh and inspire us to brush our hair in the morning. They are truly Earth’s angels.
