TV roundup: ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ renewed and Nasim Pedrad on ‘SNL’
As networks continue to move forward with their series order decisions for the fall, bits of scheduling news keep coming out. While a lot of the big name series have already been settled on, Comedy Central announced today that “Inside Amy Schumer” would be back for a third season, and “Review” and “TripTank” will also be back for new seasons. They also announced two new series, “Another Period” and “Idiotsitter.” Garfunkel and Oates fans will be happy to know that Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel, we think) will be starring in “Another Period,” alongside Natasha Leggero. Not to worry, she’s still committed to her IFC Channel series with her musical partner, Kate Micucci.
One person saying goodbye? Nasim Pedrad. The “SNL” star has been signed on to new sitcom “Mulaney” for a while, so it seemed like only a matter of time. “Mulaney” comes from “SNL” writer John Mulaney, who some viewers might remember from his occasional appearances on “Weekend Update.” Pedrad was asked about her status on the show while appearing ATX Televison Festival, and gave a slightly vague answer: “I have an apartment in L.A. and, as far as I know, I’m in L.A. now.” Lorne Michaels moves in mysterious ways.
