The comedian and singer, who's best known for performing with Amy Schumer, will star in Somebody Somewhere, a comedy based on her life in her native state of Kansas. "As a born and bred Kansan, I’m thrilled to share some of the beauty and complexity of the place that I grew up," said Everett, who was born and raised in Manhattan, Kansas. "For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamt of making a show on HBO. I’m so grateful to Amy Gravitt, Casey Bloys and the entire HBO family for their faith in Somebody Somewhere. Special thanks to LL Cool J for the words to live by, 'DDHD. Dreams Don't Have Deadlines.'" HBO executive vice president Amy Gravitt adds: "As longtime fans of her live shows, we have been looking for the perfect way to showcase Bridget’s many talents. Her quest to rediscover home has truly captured our hearts." Everett has been regularly opening for Schumer since 2012. She also appeared on Inside Amy Schumer and Trainwreck and co-hosts the podcast Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith. Everett also starred in the 2015 Comedy Central special Bridget Everett: Gynecological Wonder.
