The first season One Mississippi – which Tig Notaro wrote, produced, and starred in – leaned heavily on the dramatic notes of Notaro’s real life.
The pilot began with her character, Tig Bovaro, returning to Mississippi after getting a double mastectomy and overcoming an intestinal disease, only to watch her mother get taken off life support.
At times, it was less a comedy and more a series of devastations, accentuated with a few punch lines.
However in Season 2, the show is going for a lighter tone with some romance thrown in.
It appears that Tig is still interested in her producer, who is played by Notaro’s real-life wife, Stephanie Allynne, who may or may not be expressing mutual desire.
Bavaro is advised to go for it, but will she?
