AMC Gets Alternating Single-Camera and Multi-Camera Sitcom; Bunk'd Returning for Season 5

Annie Murphy

AMC announced that it has cast Annie Murphy (Schitt's Creek) in Kevin Can F*** Himself in the lead role of Kevin's wife, Allison, a dark comedy about a woman who escapes her confines and discovers her rage. Kevin Can F*** Himself probes the secret life of a type of woman we all grew up believing we knew: the sitcom wife. Kevin Can F*** Himself looks to break television convention and ask what the world looks like through her eyes. Alternating between single-camera realism and multi-camera comedy, the formats will inform one another as we imagine what happens when the sitcom wife escapes her confines and takes the lead in her own life. Kevin Can F*** Himself will consist of eight, hour-long episodes.


Bunk'd

Disney Channel's #1 series for Kids and Girls 6-11, Bunk'd, will soon be back for a fifth season full of more adventures at Maine's rustic Camp Kikiwaka. Erin Dunlap (Andi Mack, Jessie), who joined the series as executive producer in season four, will return as sole showrunner for season five. Former executive producer Phil Baker (Good Luck, Charlie, Andi Mack), who teamed with Dunlap on the series' highly rated fourth season, will focus on development and other projects for the channel. Production will begin in fall 2020.

Returning series regulars include Miranda May as cheerful camp owner Lou; Mallory James Mahoney (Disney Channel's Adventures in Babysitting), Raphael Alejandro (ABC's Once Upon a Time) and Will Buie Jr. (Gifted) as the loveable but mischievous campers; Shelby Simmons (Andi Mack) and Israel Johnson (Schooled) as their quirky but well-intentioned counselors.
