truTV has ordered a 10-episode second season of its critically praised half-hour variety sketch series, At Home with Amy Sedaris, co-created by Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello (Strangers with Candy). A24 (Lady Bird, 2 Dope Queens) is on board to produce the sophomore season of the scripted series, which will go into production later this year.
In At Home with Amy Sedaris, Sedaris invites viewers into her world, showcasing her unique, distinctive brand of hospitality and homemaking in weekly themed episodes which feature imaginative characters, how-to demonstrations, special guests, and more.
The series helped to expand truTV’s reach during its season one run, with more than a quarter of the audience comprised of new viewers.
Actress, author, and comedian Sedaris is the co-creator, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello, of the cult classic comedy series Strangers with Candy, and also half of the Obie-winning “Talent Family” playwright team with her brother, David Sedaris. She has written two best-selling books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.
Season two of At Home with Amy Sedaris will be executive produced by Sedaris and A24’s Ravi Nandan. The 10-episode first season is currently available on the truTV app and On Demand.
