News__ Natasha Lyonne on TV

Natasha Lyonne will be on your box (no cheerleader)

Some husky-voiced actresses get a DUI and make critically-panned biopics, others turn liquor into liquorice and develop a network TV show. Natasha Lyonne should give Lindsay a few tips because she's set to star and produce a new sitcom for Fox. The currently untitled project will be a single-camera comedy about Stella (Lyonne) living with her conservative brother after she leaves rehab. It's semi-autobiographical because Lyonne was arrested for driving drunk in 2001 and went through a court-ordered drug problem. Before the sitcom airs on Fox, you can see Lyonne in a Netflix original series called Orange is the New Black, from the creator of Weeds. It's about a women's prison. Seems like Natasha Lyonne is really cornering the "bad bitch" TV market. We're not complaining. She can be our anti-New Girl any day.
