So Long 2020! Rachel Brosnahan & Phoebe Robinson Headline ‘Yearly Departed’ Comedy Special At Amazon
Yearly Departed is a series of eulogies, where a lineup of all-women comedians will deliver on all the things we've "lost" in 2020 from casual sex to beige Band-Aids and everything in between. After a year of societal upheaval, plague, murder hornets and banana bread, Yearly Departed will give 2020 the huge send-off it deserves, from some of the world’s funniest women.
Rachel Brosnahan executive produces alongside Paige Simpson, Katy Mullan, David Jammy, Samantha Ressler, Nathalie Love, and Bess Kalb, who also serves as head writer.
“I can’t imagine a better way to lay this unfathomably awful year to rest than giving some of the world’s funniest women the last word. I’m grateful to our partners at Amazon Prime Video, We The Women, Bess Kalb and Done + Dusted for breathing life into our funeral and giving us all the opportunity to collectively heal through laughter,” said Brosnahan.
“Given the events of 2020, we can’t wait to toast its departure with this group of hilarious women, led by the incredible Rachel Brosnahan!” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Rachel, Bess, and the Done + Dusted team have come together with Phoebe Robinson to bring us some much needed laughter as this year finally ends.”
The rest of the line-up for Yearly Departed has yet to be announced. It will launch this winter on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.
