2. “One Mississippi” (Amazon)
Starring: Tig Notaro, Noah Harpster, John Rothman, Casey Wilson, Rya Kihlstedt
Synopsis: A semi-autobiographical series about comedian Tig Notaro’s life: struggling with the death of a parent, dealing with health issues and having a dysfunctional family.
Why you should watch: Notaro has made a career out of dealing with private matters in a very public way. She has never shied away from discussing the death of her mother or her cancer diagnosis in her stand-up, often bearing all – literally. She even chronicled her journey of trying to conceive with wife Stephanie Allynne in a Netflix special self-titled “Tig.” With the help of co-creator Diablo Cody (“Juno,” “Ricki and the Flash“) and fellow comic Louis C.K. who also serves as executive producer, Notaro will tell her amazing tale once again.
Premiere Date: All episodes will be available to stream Sept. 9. The pilot episode is currently available on Amazon.
