It’s Personal with Amy Hoggart will premiere Wednesday, February 26 at 10pm on truTV.
The series stars British comedian Hoggart, spinning off from her role as a correspondent on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS (Bee exec produces here). Here’s the trailer, which might fill the hole in your comedy heart left behind by Nathan Fielder, perhaps?
“I’m trying to be a better person!” proclaims Hoggart. “And good people help people! Whatever the outcome, please know that my intentions were kind. I’m so grateful to Sam and truTV for this incredible opportunity to save people and change their lives. One day, I hope someone is kind enough to do the same for me!”
“I am so happy everyone outside of our offices now gets to benefit from Amy’s extraordinary knowledge that is not based on any medical training,” says Bee. “Amy is extremely smart and talented so I know her show can make an impact on the emotional distress Americans are currently facing. Do they give out PhDs to TV hosts? No? I bet they will after a season of this show.”
In each episode of this docu-style comedy series, she attempts to untangle people’s everyday issues such as shame, revenge, anxiety, grief, and… Miami. Amy’s personal issues echo those of her clients’ in unexpected, ridiculous ways. There is a Fielder connection, too, as Leo Allen (Nathan For You) serves as the showrunner here.
