Annie Murphy of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Cast as Lead in New AMC Series


While we’ll sorely miss Schitt’s Creek, its ending has brought exciting opportunities for Annie Murphy who has played Alexis Rose for six seasons on the beloved comedy series.

Murphy’s next project is the lead role in the upcoming AMC series Kevin Can F*** Himself. The show is described as a dark comedy about a woman named Allison who is fed up with being the stereotypical “sitcom wife” and what happens when she escapes the confines of that role.

The show was created by Valerie Armstrong (Lodge 49) and Rashida Jones who will both also serve as executive producers. Will McCormack will be a co-writer with Jones and Craig DiGregorio will helm the series as showrunner.

There is no word yet on a premiere date but the show is scheduled to air eight 1-hour episodes.

Amanda is a mental health counselor by day and a nerd by night. She’s been fangirling since 1989 when she had so many New Kids On The Block posters in her bedroom that she ran out of wall space and had to put them on her ceiling. She finds people and stories fascinating and even went to film school years ago. The journey from film to Social Work is a long, depressing tale, but she came out the other side feeling inspired to help people. Now she’s living out that old Hollywood cliché. You know, the one where someone can’t contain their passion any longer and leaves a career in entertainment to pursue their dreams of becoming a therapist in the Midwest. She’s not a filmmaker anymore but she is a fan. Her favorite genres are sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, and musicals. She loves Supernatural, New Kids On The Block (duh), and comes from a family of Star Trek nerds. She might also be a little obsessed with her cats.
