Amy will guest star in a new upcoming special on Animal Planet, Lil BUB’s Special Special! The show premieres Saturday, February 8, 9-30 pm ET/PT.
Here’s more about the special from Animal Planet: “Lil BUB’s owner, Mike, is heading out on the town for the night, but Lil BUB has plans to watch Andrew W.K.’s new clip show at a slumber party with her wild assortment of friends. And, as the saying goes, when Lil BUB’s dude is away, the cat will play! So, Mike enlists a special ‘bubbysitter,’ Amy Sedaris, to look after the party and make sure things don’t get too catty. Amy is the cat’s meow when it comes to bubbysitting, playing charades with the gang and ordering a pizza with outlandish toppings that is sure to please all. But, no matter how cool of a cat Amy is, she can’t stop Lil BUB and her friends from partaking in prank phone calls, pillow fights and other hijinks. And, to top the night off, Lil BUB unveils a ‘purrfect’ surprise – her special brand of space magic that leaves everyone open jawed with tongues out!”
Well, 2014 is starting off on the right foot… Amy returns to Raising Hope next week (January 10 on FOX)! You might remember that Amy appeared in seasons 1 and 2 of Raising Hope as Virginia’s obnoxious cousin Delilah. You can read more about her return to the series on TV Guide: First Look: Amy Sedaris returns to Raising Hope. In the meantime, you can also revisit her first two guest spots (hilarious) on Netflix streaming. Just look for “What Up, Cuz?” in season 1 and “Henderson, Nevada-Adjacent Baby” in season 2.
Amy Sedaris has signed on to guest star on Broad City, a new series produced by Amy Poehler! I don’t have any other specific details about Amy’s spot yet, but I will of course post them when I find out. Broad City will premiere January 22 on Comedy Central (you can read more about it at Entertainment Weekly).
Netflix keeps getting better! A new animated Netflix original series, BoJack Horseman, will feature the voices of Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris and Aaron Paul. Wired.com describes the series, “Created by comedian and writer Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the 12-episode BoJack Horseman takes its name from Arnett’s character, an alcoholic former television star fallen on hard times who just happens to be a horse, who might have a shot at the big time again — assuming that he doesn’t screw it all up.” Amy will voice BoJack’s feline ex-girlfriend. The first season of BoJack Horseman is slated to premiere mid-2014.
In other news, Amy continues to guest star on Amazon’s new original series, Alpha House. At this point, I think it’s safe to assume that Amy will appear in most, if not all, of the remaining episodes this season. New episodes are added every Friday, and are available to Amazon Prime subscribers.
Amy Sedaris guest stars on Alpha House episode 1×05, ‘Hippo Issues.’
Amy Sedaris made her second guest appearance on this week’s episode of Amazon’s new original series, Alpha House! Prime members can watch it here (episode 5, ‘Hippo Issues’).
