WandaVision Actor Kathryn Hahn Bags Another Interesting Project

Actress Kathryn Hahn who we recently saw as the villainous Agatha Harkness will be a part of the upcoming limited series “The Comeback Girl”. After her chilling performance in WandaVision, this comes as no surprise that the actress is hopping onto another acclaimed project. This time we might get to see her in an iconic role as never seen before!

“The Comeback Girl” is in development at Showtime, produced by Warner Bros. Television, Atlas Entertainment and Berlanti Productions, reports variety.com. Kathryn Hahn will be playing Joan Rivers in this upcoming limited series.

In addition to starring as Rivers, Kathryn Hahn will also be the executive producer for “The Comeback Girl”, Greg Berlanti will direct and executive produce and Cosmo Carlson will write and executive produce.

Carlson, a two-time Black List screenwriter wrote “The Comeback Girl” as a spec script. With Atlas Entertainment’s Richard Suckle and Robert Amidon behind the project, Suckle and Carlson brought it to Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions, who signed on.

Rivers died at age 81 on September 4 several days after she’d stopped breathing during a routine endoscopy on her throat.

She had been a revolutionary figure in the world of stand-up comedy, especially as a woman and particularly during the 1960s, when her star began to rise in New York’s comedy scene.

She also began her run of appearances on “The Tonight Show” in the mid-1960s, which eventually led to her becoming Johnny Carson’s regular guest host on that show in the 1980s.

The two had a bitter falling out in 1986 after she went to the nascent Fox network for her own show, called “The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers”. In doing so, Rivers became the first woman to host a late-night talk show but also Carson’s competition.

He said he hadn’t heard the news from her, which hurt him, and he banned her from “The Tonight Show”.

“The Comeback Girl” is primarily set in the aftermath of the cancellation of “The Late Show,” which coincided with Rivers’ husband (and “Late Show” producer) Edgar Rosenberg’s death by suicide.

Hahn was nominated for an Emmy for “WandaVision” and will soon be seen in Apple TV’s “The Shrink Next Door”. She recently completed filming on Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out 2”.
