The Amazon Pilots for Fall 2015 are live on Amazon.com and Tig Notaro’s One Missisippi is the clear standout.
The pilot is dark, very dark, but you won’t be able to take your eyes off of it. Tig is excellent playing herself, and from the opening moments, you can’t help be drawn into the story. The story is loosely based on Notaro’s own life and experiences and starts with some major events in her life. Tig’s character heads back to her hometown to deal with her mom’s death shortly after her own double masectomy. She finds herself in a living hell, where the sudden loss of her mom is just the beginning of the bizarre life changes that await her.
