According to Deadline, the series will follow Irby through "failed relationships, taco feasts, her struggles with Crohn's disease, poverty, blackness, and body image." Sure, it sounds kind of somber, but if Marya Hornbacher's 2013 Reader profile on Irby is any indication, the result will be anything but: "i think that without humor those of us who loathe ourselves would be dead," she wrote in an e-mail to Hornbacher. "Not 'dead' but DEAD, walking blindly into traffic DEAD."
