Fresh off the debut of its weekly docuseries partnership with The New York Times, The Weekly, FX has announced five more docs coming to the cable network in the months ahead. One of them is about women in comedy.
Here’s the official description from FX:
WOMEN IN COMEDY
For decades female stand-up comedians have struggled against biases both conscious and unconscious, but now an interesting narrative is emerging as women are more daringly using the medium to express their points of view on their experiences and the culture at large. Women in Comedy, a feature length documentary by director Andrea Nevins (Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie), will examine the changing landscape for women in stand up through intimate interviews and the examination of their groundbreaking art in the post Me Too era. Women in Comedy is executive produced by Ross Dinerstein (The Innocent Man), Jim Serpico and Nevins, with Jessica Kirson serving as Producer.
