IFC Orders David Krumholtz’s ‘Gigi’s Bucket List’ to Series
David Krumholtz has been developing a new comedy for IFC since November, and today the network announced that it’s headed to TV soon with an eight-episode first season. Titled Gigi’s Bucket List, the half-hour series centers on Krumholtz as a Jewish grandmother named Gertrude Rotblum aka Gigi, who “just lost her beloved husband Harold, but has gained a new lease on life with the help of an unknown bank account discovered in his will.” Zach & Miri Make a Porno’s Ricky Mabe will play Gigi’s “trusty male nurse sidekick,” and production begins in Los Angeles this June. “This character has been living inside me since birth. Friends have often accused me of acting like a grandma,” Krumholtz said on the news. “It’s an absolute privilege to be bringing Gigi to life for IFC, known for their irreverent brand of comedy and willingness to explore depth of character.” Gigi’s Bucket List will premiere on IFC later this year.
