Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video will produce Shrill along with Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Jesse Peretz will direct and produce the first episode, while Carrie Brownstein will direct the second. Rushfield will serve as the series showrunner.
All six episodes of Shrill will be available to stream on Hulu Friday, March 15.
