If you imagined the unlikeliest pair to team up as a comedy duo, Tig Notaro and Jennifer Aniston might make your list. Aniston is best known for playing broad mass appeal roles, whereas Tig has more of an indie sensibility. But Netflix is banking on some serious chemistry between the two and have cast them as a couple in a series created by Notaro. Not just any couple- a first couple.
“First Ladies” will star Aniston as President of the US and Tig Notaro as her first lady- the first lesbian couple in the White House. Beverly and Kasey Nicholson move into the White House, they’ll prove that behind every great woman… is another great woman. Tig Notaro will write the political comedy with Stephanie Allynne.
No word on when the series is set to be released but for now you can anticipate Tig’s new hour of stand up, coming may 22nd to Netflix.
