    “SHOWTIME has released the official trailer for I LOVE THAT FOR YOU, the half-hour comedy series starring and executive produced by Emmy(R) nominee Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), with fellow nominee Molly Shannon (The White Lotus) and Screen Actors Guild(R) Award nominee Jenifer Lewis (Black-ish) also leading the cast.

    Inspired by Bayer’s own story of overcoming childhood leukemia, I LOVE THAT FOR YOU centers on Joanna Gold (Bayer) who dreams of becoming a host at a home shopping channel. Working to shed her life-long label as “that cancer girl,” she moves away from her parents, starts a budding romance for the first time in her adult life and forms a meaningful friendship with her idol Jackie (Shannon), the charismatic star of the network, all against the backdrop of a highly competitive workplace where people play dirty to succeed. Lewis plays Patricia, the icy, enigmatic founder and CEO of the popular home shopping channel. Additional series regulars include Paul James (Soundtrack) as Jordan, a charming but dry stage manager; Ayden Mayeri (Homecoming) as Beth Ann, an ambitious insecure host; Matt Rogers (Haute Dog) as Darcy, the ingratiating right-hand man to Patricia; and Emmy nominee Punam Patel (Special) as Beena, an offbeat backstage producer. Johnno Wilson (Curb Your Enthusiasm) guest stars as Perry, a beloved host on the network with a popular cooking show.

    I LOVE THAT FOR YOU is co-created and executive produced by Bayer and Emmy nominee and two-time Peabody winner Jeremy Beiler (Saturday Night Live). Emmy and Peabody winner Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer) will serve as showrunner and executive producer along with Michael Showalter (The Dropout, The Eyes of Tammy Faye). Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle of Annapurna, Jordana Mollick of Semi-Formal and Allyce Ozarski also serve as executive producers.”
