New comedy series This Way Up is the brainchild of Aisling Bea, and she took a few minutes to stop by our studio and discuss the finer details of the show. Afterwards, she also talks about comedy as an art form and how important community is to that art. The show is hilarious and worth the watch, and—if you want to know more about how the show came to be—so is this interview.
This Way Up is now streaming on Hulu. Here’s the official synopsis:
This Way Up is a comedy drama about moving on, moving forward and trying to find happiness. Written by Aisling Bea (Living With Yourself, The Fall, Netflix The Comedy Line Up) she also stars as the charming and funny Aine, who is trying to pull her life back together after a “teeny little nervous breakdown.” Her sister Shona, played by Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Game Night, Pulling), is increasingly worried about both her sister and her own relationship issues with her boyfriend, played by Aasif Mandvi (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Halal in the Family) and the impending question of marriage.
