HBO Max, a new streaming service which is set to launch in the spring of 2020, have ordered a documentary which will follow comedian, Amy Schumer, throughout her pregnancy.
Amy suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition which causes chronic nausea and sickness, and was hospitalised several times as a result. The I Feel Pretty star shared much of her journey on social media at the time, but will be revealing more in the doc, which has purportedly been titled Expecting Amy.
Amy, who gave birth to her son Gene earlier this year, will be sharing never-before-seen clips, as she juggles her pregnancy with her work schedule, and of course, we can expect a fair amount of her trademark humour too.Amy Schumer On How Her Husband's Autism Diagnosis Has Affected Their Marriage:
"Amy Schumer is an inspiration and this project is such an honest look at her experience being on the road while preparing for her special," the head of original content at HBO Max said in a statement to Variety.
"Her willingness to showcase her immense vulnerability, during the most challenging time in her life, is both empowering and hilarious," the statement continued.
"Beginning the day she found out she was pregnant, through the birth of her child, she showcases her incredible journey on the road, revealing just how challenging it can be working night after night, week after week, with no regrets or excuses. Expecting Amy offers a hilarious and raw 360 degree look at this new stage of her life. With her family and colleagues along for the ride to support her and keep her sane and balanced, she does it all with perseverance, heart and the priceless sense of humor she’s known for."
The documentary will be providing an "unfiltered" and "behind-the-scenes" look on everything from Amy's personal life, and relationship with husband, Chris Fischer, to her pregnancy-related hospitalisations - and I don't know about you, but I just can't wait for this to drop!
