ASK MY MOM! STARRING MARIA BAMFORD PREMIERES ON THE MY DAMN CHANNEL COMEDY NETWORK
NEW YORK, NY – May 29, 2013 – Comedian/actress Maria Bamford (Arrested Development, Louie, Adventure Time, Word Girl, Kung Fu Panda, Legend of Korra) is joining the My Damn Channel Comedy Network with her new comedy series Ask My Mom! The series will premiere with two episodes on Thursday, May 30 and be available simultaneously on My Damn Channel, Blip and YouTube. New episodes premiere Thursdays in June.
In Ask My Mom!, Maria plays both herself and her mother, Marilyn Bamford, in a homemade advice show offering the busy senior’s heartfelt, absurd, and liberal Christian advice on love, life, parenting, religion, and how to upload your Weight Watchers points to the Cloud. Viewers can submit questions to Maria’s mom by visiting ask-my-mom.com, and also communicate with Maria via Twitter and Facebook.
“Maria Bamford is one of the best comic talents there is,” said My Damn Channel Founder/CEO Rob Barnett. “Maria and her ‘mom’ share wisdom with our advice-seeking fans in a series that unleashes a ton of possibilities to expand into a second season.”
Hailed by Judd Apatow as "the most unique, bizarre, imaginative comedian out there right now," Maria won rave reviews for her most recent comedy special (Special Special Special!). Maria has a recurring role in the new season of Arrested Development, premiering now on Netflix. She was recently a recurring guest on FX’s Louie, and is a voice actor for the award-winning animated series, Adventure Time (Cartoon Network) and Word Girl (PBS), as well as Kung Fu Panda and Legend of Korra – both series for Nickelodeon.
Ask My Mom! is produced by PRECISION Productions + Post, the award winning creator of branded entertainment for FX, Disney, Fox Sports Network, Epson and Honda among others, and directed by PRECISION's Joe Arnao.
