FX develops "MEATY," a comedy series by Samantha Irby, Jessi Klein, and Abbi Jacobson

Samantha Irby, author of the award-winning essay collection Meaty (which we published Fall 2013) is co-creating a show for FX! With Jessi Klein, head writer of “Inside Amy Schumer" and Abbi Jacobson of "Broad City," Samantha Irby will bring the same hilarious wit from her blog "Bitches Gotta Eat" to the small screen.



Based on the book of the same name, Meaty takes its audience through failed relationships, taco feasts, blackness, and body image. The half-hour series is co-written by Irby and Klein and executively produced by the three women. We. Cannot. Wait. Congratulations, Samantha!
