Hulu first announced the series in July 2019, according to TVinsider, at which point the title was going to be “Love, Beth.”
Hulu says the series “follows an unsatisfied Manhattan woman feeling uninspired by her ‘successful’ New York life and lackluster relationship. When an unexpected death occurs in the family, Beth goes back home to her family farm and discovers her childhood journal entries. The entries help spark reinvention and remembrance of what makes her happy, empowering her to take charge of her life.”
In June 2020, Schumer said “About three years ago, I found my journals from growing up, from age 13-21… And it made me remember the time when I had all this confidence and life was fun and full of possibility. So, I really wanted to make a show about a woman who blows her whole life up and returns to the things that really make her happy.”
