Today, Disney+ shared a first look at the Original comedy series “Life & Beth” coming soon to Disney+ under the Star banner. The 10-episode series stars Amy Schumer, who also executive produces.
“Life & Beth” tells the story of Beth (Amy Schumer, “Trainwreck,” “I Feel Pretty”), a woman whose life would look pretty great on paper.
Impressive to everyone she grew up with, she makes a good living as a wine distributor, she’s in a long-term relationship with a successful guy and lives in Manhattan. When a sudden incident forces Beth to engage with her past, her life changes forever. Through flashbacks to her teen self, Beth starts to learn how she became who she is and who she wants to become. We’ll go on her journey towards building a bigger, bolder and more authentic life, learning to express herself and living in an intentional way. A trip down memory lane is a strong source of trauma, comedy and moving forward.
“Life & Beth” is written, directed, and executive-produced by series star Amy Schumer and executive-produced by Kevin Kane, Daniel Powell and Ryan McFaul. The series also stars Michael Cera, Susannah Flood and Violet Young. Guest stars include Kevin Kane, Yamaneika Saunders, Laura Benanti, Larry Owens, Michael Rapaport, Rosebud Baker and LaVar Walker.
