Kevin Can F**K Himself
Explore the secret life of a woman we all grew up watching: the sitcom wife. The series looks to break television convention and ask what the world looks like through her eyes. Alternating between single-camera realism and multi-camera zaniness, the formats will inform one another as we imagine what happens when the sitcom wife escapes her confines, and takes the lead in her own life.

"Starring Schitt’s Creek’s Annie Murphy (Alexis Rose) and Mary Hollis Inboden (The Real O’neals and The Righteous Gemstones), this show really breaks the sit-com mold. Annie Murphy plays a discontented housewife with a giant oaf of a husband and no one she would consider to be real friends. You watch in horror as everything goes totally sideways while trying her best to not end up in jail for murdering her horrible husband. Although Murphy’s Boston accent isn’t always on point, that is a very overlook-able and small complaint when you see what they are trying to accomplish here. With its half laugh track and half super gritty aesthetic, they way this show was crafted really goes the extra avant-grade mile. If you have the chance, check this one out (Streaming on AMC+)"
"Wow, I find this compelling. It presents itself as your usual mediocre sitcom: brightly lit, with a laugh track, buffoonery, etc. Then when Kevin isn't in the scene, the lighting dulls, there isn't a laugh track or high jinx, and you see what other character's are really thinking and feeling, about Kevin, themselves and their lives. Mary Hollis Imboden is terrific in this, too."
"My hope for the show is that it goes full "Twilight Zone," and that Kevin is some sort of godlike being who can't be killed in a conventional way, perhaps the center of a universe that's not actually our own. Something along the lines of the "USS Callister" episode of "Black Mirror," maybe. Fingers crossed."
