Today, Entertainment Weekly debuts Polished, a new weekly web series hosted by writer and comedian Jamie Lee (whom you may recognize from MTV’s Girl Code). For the next eight weeks, Jamie will sit down with a variety of women in entertainment—comedians, actors, musicians—to talk about work, life, and whatever else (cats come up surprisingly often) while they get manicures or pedicures.

First up is actress, podcaster, and comedian Kulap Vilaysack, who’s in the process of making a documentary that digs into a shocking revelation she learned from her mother as a teenager.

New episodes will post on EW.com every Wednesday.
