Amy Poehler-Produced ‘Three Busy Debras’ Gets Series Order From Adult Swim

Sandy Honig, Mitra Jouhari, and Alyssa Stonoha star as the Debras

“Three Busy Debras,” a new quarter-hour comedy from Amy Poehler’s Paper Kit Productions, has been ordered to series at Adult Swim.

Sandy Honig (“Isn’t it Romantic”), Mitra Jouhari (“High Maintenance”), and Alyssa Stonoha (“The Chris Gethard Show”) star as the Three Busy Debras. The comedy trio are the series’ creators and writers.

Per the network, the series embraces the absurd in the ‘burbs, following the surreal day-to-day lives of three “deranged” housewives, all named Debra. It takes place in the fictional, affluent suburban town of Lemoncurd, Connecticut.

The Three Busy Debras first rose to popularity in 2016 after they raised money to perform a show at Carnegie Hall, which sold out.

Adult Swim picked up the pilot last May from Paper Kite, and production for the first season is set to start later this year. A premiere date has not yet been set.

“Paper Kite is thrilled to help amplify the bold and bloody voices of the ‘Three Busy Debras.’ We hope this show makes you feel strange in all the right ways,” Poehler said in a statement.

Anna Dokoza directs and executive produces with Honig, Jouhari and Stonoha. Poehler and Kim Lessing also executive produce for Paper Kite.
