“Annie is an undeniable talent with the ability both to play comedy and to break your heart,” said Sarah Barnett, president AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios in a statement to THR. “She is the perfect fit for the role of Allison, the perfect actor to bring to life creator Valerie Armstrong’s genius vision. Cracking open the conventions of the classic American sitcom to expose what’s swirling beneath, in this highly inventive and entertaining way, is the kind of story we are hugely excited to tell at AMC.”

Created by Lodge 49 veteran Armstrong, Kevin Can F**k Himself probes the secret life of a type of woman we all grew up believing we knew: the sitcom wife. Kevin Can F**k Himself looks to break television convention and ask what the world looks like through her eyes. Alternating between single-camera realism and multi-camera comedy, the formats will inform one another as we imagine what happens when the sitcom wife escapes her confines and forces the world to let her take the lead.

Craig DiGregorio (Shrill, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World) will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Armstrong will also executive produce alongside Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. The series will consist of 10 hour-long episodes. Currently, AMC hasn’t set a release date for the series.

Murphy has racked up three Canadian Screen Awards nominations for her portrayal of Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek, which is currently airing its sixth and final season on Canada’s CBC and Pop TV in the United States.
