Lindy West's wry memoir becomes a Hulu series with the help of producers Aidy Bryant, Ali Rushfield, and David Cress

 

The streaming comedy series Shrill, based on the memoir by Seattleite Lindy West, tackles such hot-button issues as abortion, cancer care, and body shaming.  Filmed in Portland, and inheriting a production team from the sketch comedy series Portlandia, Shrill boasts the acting talents of Aidy Bryant, John Cameron Mitchell, Julia Sweeney, and Daniel Stern.

As Shrill begins its third and final season, S.W. Conser is joined over Zoom by author Lindy West, showrunner Ali Rushfield, and producer David Cress, who talk about the challenges of adapting memoir for the small screen, taking a boldly feminist stand in the age of trolling, and producing a TV series in the middle of a pandemic.
