Comedian Maria Bamford has already appeared on multiple TV shows — Fresh Off the Boat, Louie, Arrested Development — but now she’s getting her very own: Netflix announced Friday that they’ve ordered a comedy series starring Bamford called Lady Dynamite.

Netflix describes Lady Dynamite as telling “the story of a woman who loses — and then finds — her s–t.” Bamford, Pam Brady, and Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz will executive produce the single-camera show, which will kick off on a yet-to-be-announced date with 13 half-hour episodes.

Bamford’s most recent comedy special, 2012’s The Special Special Special, features her giving a show to a very limited audience: her two parents. It’s now streaming on Netflix.
