The show also plans to “take a deeper look at race and sexuality” and follow a new cast of characters.
Abbi Jacobson of “Broad City” will star in the show and executive produce, along with the producer of “Mozart in the Jungle,” Will Graham.
“It took grit, fire, authenticity, wild imagination and a crackling sense of humor for these players to achieve their dreams,” Graham and Jacobson said in a statement. “We’re hoping to bring audiences a story with all of those qualities.”
The series will also star Chanté Adams, D'Arcy Carden, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Kelly McCormack, Roberta Colindrez, and Priscilla Delgado, with recurring guest stars Molly Ephraim, Kate Berlant and Melanie Field.
The show will be available on Amazon Prime Video but the studio didn’t announce a date.
