HBO Max Orders Unscripted Amy Schumer Series


HBO Max has given an eight-episode order to Amy Learns To…, a half-hour unscripted series starring Amy Schumer.

Marking Schumer’s second project with HBO Max, Amy Learns To… will see the comic step out of her comfort zone to learn a new skill, craft or trade from a local expert in her husband’s hometown on Martha’s Vineyard. As she learns to dive for clams, sell real estate, perform a magic trick and repair a roof, she’ll meet each challenge with humor and a willingness to try anything.

Amy Learns To… is produced by Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC) with Amy Schumer and IPC’s Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman serving as executive producers.

Jennifer O’Connell, executive VP of nonfiction and live-action family at HBO Max, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Amy again! She is sure to surprise and amaze us with her willingness to push boundaries and try something new, always with a hilarious spin.”

Schumer added: “We are pumped for this.”
