Another Period Returns Jan. 23; Pop Orders Comedy Pilot from Krysten Ritter

Another Period

Greedy. Corrupt. New money. Hungry for fame. Sound familiar? Newport, RI's first family, the Bellacourts, are back with the third season premiere of Another Period on Tuesday, January 23 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT! The third season of the turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series, co-created by and starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, directed by Jeremy Konner and executive produced by Ben Stiller's Red Hour, follows the fifth season premiere of Drunk History. Prior to the new season, fans can indulge themselves like a Bellacourt by binging on the first two seasons of Another Period, available now on cc.com and the Comedy Central App.

Now in its third season, Another Period tells the incredible story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by Leggero and Lindhome), who are defined by their family's wealth and care only about becoming super famous - which is a lot harder in 1902. The series follows the insanely decadent and outrageous life of the Bellacourt coterie which, before others claimed their own fame, were the one American family who epitomized all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid - with more servants than relatives and days filled with money, sex, drugs... and more money.

In the upcoming season, The Bellacourts' fight for suffrage in congress, become some of America's first female Olympic athletes, deal with an opioid addiction and campaign to make America great again, for the first time. Starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, Another Period also Stars Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Alice Hunter, Brian Huskey, Jason Ritter, David Wain and Armen Weitzman. Season Three also Features Donna Lynne Champlin, Jon Daly, Nancy Friedrich, Moshe Kasher, Kate Micucci, Missi Pyle, Will Sasso and Betsy Sodaro.


Krysten Ritter

Monsters... .and demon hunters... and a disgraced New York socialite... oh my! Moving forward on a new scripted comedy project, Pop has ordered a half-hour pilot, The Demons of Dorian Gunn, executive produced by actress, author and producer Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) and Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns (Younger, Broad City, Search Party) of JAX Media. Pilot production for The Demons of Dorian Gunn kicks off in January 2018 in New York City, a backdrop which plays a major role in the show.

Written by Evan Greenspoon and Brandon Scott Jones (Upright Citizens Brigade), The Demons of Dorian Gunn follows disgraced New York socialite Dorian Gunn, who discovers he's descended from a long line of demon hunters and is forced to abandon his life of leisure to protect humanity from monsters as they emerge from the gates of hell.
