Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks and adapted from Lindy West's memoir "Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman," SHRILL is a comedy series that centers on Annie, a fat young woman who wants to change her life -- but not her body. Annie is trying to start her career while juggling bad boyfriends, a sick parent, and a perfectionist boss. When the morning after pill fails and aspiring journalist Annie winds up pregnant, she weighs the pros and cons of having a child with her hook-up buddy. The decision-making process forces Annie, with help from her best friend Fran, to figure out who she is and what she wants from her life. Annie's writing her first article, going on her first date with Ryan and, finally, asking more from the people in her life than she has before. Things are looking up, until an internet troll appears and tries to drag her self-esteem back down where it started. Series star Aidy Bryant serves as a co-writer of SHRILL, which premieres on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, with Hulu releasing six episodes of the series.
