Comedy Imperative has greenlit a pilot from Reductress co-creators Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo for a overdue-night time show edition of their women ’s media satire web site, in line with The Hollywood Reporter. Saturday Night Time Reside ’s Abby Elliott will serve as the show ’s in-persona host. The Reductress Hour will intention to translate the withering social statement that has made the location so beloved by way of Ladies On-Line™ in up to date years.
The Reductress website online, launched in 2013 and regularly defined (paradoxically or not) as the Onion For Women, has been a balm in an technology fraught with attacks on girls, from well being care get right of entry to to corporate feminism. It skewers women ’s way of life blogs and sanguine marketing with headlines like “‘Most Girls Lie Approximately Rape, ’ Says Man Lying About Rape,” “White Girls Thank Themselves for Thanking Black Girls Today,” “Glossier Declares New Line of Make-Up For Ladies No Longer Already Gorgeous,” and “QUIZ: Is He Into You, Only A Loved One, or Seeking To Get You To Sign Up For the Democratic Socialists?” According To The Hollywood Reporter, the location draws 2.5 million distinctive visitors per 30 days.
Here ’s hoping the impending pilot turns out better than 2008 ’s The Onion Movie. (Although taking into consideration how neatly Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has done on TBS, prerequisites for ladies ’s satire on TV have by no means been higher, so clearing that bar almost certainly received ’t be too arduous.)
