Maria Bamford plays herself in the loosely autographical series “Lady Dynamite.” Teaming up with “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz, Bamford plays a comedian/actor who has a mental breakdown and is subsequently diagnosed with Bipolar II. Although this seems like the premise for a drama series, the show is more satirical, with the same kind of humor fans loved on “Arrested Development.”

“Lady Dynamite” will release its entire first season on May 20 on Netflix. Watch the trailer above and check out the exclusive art below.
