Amy Schumer opens up about pregnancy in new docuseries ‘Expecting Amy.’ Here’s when it airs
In a three-part docuseries produced by HBO Max, Amy Schumer gives viewers a close look into her life and what was going on throughout her pregnancy.
Amy Schumer is back on TV, but this time with a little bit different content.
In the upcoming three-part docuseries “Expecting Amy,” the comedian shares intimate details of her pregnancy journey, according to the Washington Post. And a fair warning: Schumer endured a difficult pregnancy.
The story is a gestation of three major moments in Schumer’s life: the birth of her child, the making of her Netflix comedy special and a breakthrough in her marriage with husband Chris Fischer.
At the start of the docuseries, Schumer tearfully announces, “I found out two days ago that I am pregnant — maybe I’ll document it or something,” according to CNN.
“Expecting Amy” is primarily filmed on Schumer’s and her husband’s phones, giving viewers a raw and intimate look into her life. It’s also a continuation of the comedian’s openness, as she is known for telling self-deprecating jokes about bad boyfriends and other struggles with young adulthood, according to the Washington Post.
Throughout “Expecting Amy,” viewers watch as Schumer enjoys the beginning of her pregnancy, calling it “cute,” to experiencing and battling hyperemesis gravidarum — sustained and severe vomiting and dehydration.
