Posted on

Maria Bamford’s first series is landing on Netflix in little over a month, and now we have our first look at Lady Dynamite.

Co-created by Arrested Development showrunner Mitchell Hurwitz, the series will follow Maria Bamford’s character as she goes through a mental breakdown. The topic is familiar for Bamford, who’s based much of her successful stand-up career on her personal struggles with maintaining mental health.

The new stills from Lady Dynamite offer a first look at Bamford and her co-stars, including fellow funny ladies Ana Gasteyer, Bridget Everett, and Lennon Parham. Gasteyer’s elegantly bespectacled character Karen Grisham is Bamford’s agent. Everett (Inside Amy Schumer) and Parham (Playing House) play Bamford’s friends, Dagmar and Larissa.

The series also stars Patton Oswalt and Fred Melamed, and a tweet from Bamford suggests that John Mulaney appears in the first episode.

Check out the stills below. Lady Dynamite premieres May 20 on Netflix.
