The Comeback Girl

Joan Rivers may no longer be with us, but she lives on in a variety of ways.  Her books, her jewelry, and her comedy specials ensure that she’ll be a presence for generations to come.  Hot on the heels of HBO’s Hacks (which is loosely inspired by Auntie Joan’s life), Showtime has announced plans for a limited series.  The Comeback Girl will find Kathryn Hahn in the role of Joan Rivers.  The series has been described thusly: “Trailblazer.  Adored.  Cruel.  Diva.  Joan Rivers had a life like no other.  At age 54, she was a superstar comedienne…and then it all fell apart.  The Comeback Girl is the awe-inspiring untold story of how Joan Rivers persevered through near suicide and professional abyss to rebuild herself and her career to become a global icon.”  So, they’ll focus on her firing from The Late Show on FOX, her husband Edgar’s suicide, and her “comeback”.
