Netflix Also Signs Morgan for Two All-New Stand-Up Specials


Netflix, Inc.

25 April 2024 – Netflix today announced a 16-episode order for an untitled Leanne Morgan scripted, multicam comedy, starring the popular stand-up comedian. The series is created by Morgan, Chuck Lorre and Susan McMartin. Additionally, Morgan will do two stand-up specials for Netflix.

Untitled Leanne Morgan Project Logline:

Leanne's life takes an unexpected turn when her husband of 33 years leaves her for another woman. Starting over when you're a grandmother and in menopause isn't exactly what she had in mind, but with the help of her family she will navigate this new chapter with grace, dignity and jello salad.

This marks Lorre's latest project for Netflix, following the critically-acclaimed and Golden Globe award winning series The Kominsky Method.


Chuck Lorre, Leanne Morgan, Susan McMartin and Judi Marmel are executive producers. Untitled Leanne Morgan Project comes from Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Leanne Morgan:

"I've dreamed of this since childhood, and I can't believe it has come true! When I started comedy 25 years ago, my goal was to be a part of a sitcom. It just goes to show you it's never too late, and dreams do come true. I'm a grandmama from Tennessee, and now I have a TV show with Chuck Lorre and Netflix. What in the world!?"

Chuck Lorre Bio:

"If you've seen even ten seconds of Leanne Morgan's stand up then you know what a unique comedic force she is. The theme of starting over is universal, and I cannot think of anyone better to combine heart and comedy than Leanne. I knew I had to work with her, and I'm so excited to bring this story to Netflix."

Tracey Pakosta, Head of Comedy, Netflix:

"We're so thrilled to deepen our partnership with Leanne Morgan, whose singular and hilarious voice hooked viewers with her debut Netflix special last year, and to reunite with the legendary Chuck Lorre. We're looking forward to their collaboration on Netflix's next big comedy series."
