It is the comedy series offered by Annie, a girl who is looking for ways to change the course of her life completely without changing her body. The series starts with Annie as Annie writes her first article in the paper and may need more people in her life than she did. On the other hand, Annie seems to be asking for her best friend's help in order to make a decisive decision in her life by knowing who she is and what she wants to be.
To call it a slice-of-life series wouldn't do justice to the well-honed commentary - on everything from false perceptions of health to institutionalized exclusion - but part of what makes "Shrill" so engaging is its diversity of storylines.
The main reason "Shrill" lands is Bryant's unfussy performance. She radiates the wounded hopefulness of someone who's ready for the next chapter of her life, and by the end of the six-episode season, she's there.
