Laid: Stephanie Hsu to Lead Peacock Comedy From Fresh Off the Boat Creator

Peacock has officially granted a straight-to-series order to Nahnatchka Khan and Sally Bradford McKenna’s upcoming comedy series Laid.

After her breakthrough performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once, Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu has signed on for the leading role in the series. This marks Hsu’s first major TV project as the solo lead, following her recurring roles in shows like The Path, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Awkwafina is Nora from Queens.

What to expect in Laid?

“A woman finds out her former lovers are dying in unusual ways and must go back through her sex timeline to confront her past in order to move forward – LAID is a f**cked up rom-com where the answer to ‘Why can’t I find love, is there something wrong with me?’ is a resounding ‘Yes. There is. The problem is definitely you,'” reads the logline.

Laid is written and executive produced by Khan (Fresh Off the Boat, Totally Killer) and McKenna (The Goldbergs) who previously collaborated together on 2012’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23. The project will be based on the Australian series of the same name which hailed from Marieke Hardy and Kirsty Fisher.

In addition to starring, Hsu will also be taking on an executive producing role alongside John Davis, John Fox, Jennifer Carreras, Hardy, Fisher, and Liz Watts. It hails from Universal Television and All3Media International.
