Annie Murphy apparently is drawn to shows with irreverent titles. After six seasons on “Schitt’s Creek,” the Emmy-winning actress shifts to this high-concept dramedy that both spoofs and skewers TV’s generic sitcom wife archetypes.
Murphy plays Allison Roberts, a Boston-based woman married to an overweight, self-centered man-child (Kevin McRoberts) who lives for video games, the Red Sox and the company of his bros. As for Allison, well, she’s little more than a sandwich-serving prop.
The show alternates in tone between a multi-camera sitcom (with annoying laugh track) and more cinematic scenes in which we see life through the eyes of Allison — a woman who is nearing her breaking point.
Details: Premieres June 13; AMC+ and June 20, AMC.
