... as long as you have a solid internet connection. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Hulu has picked up the adaptation of Lindy West's best-selling memoir Shrill. The six-episode series will star SNL's Aidy Bryant and is being produced by Elizabeth Banks and Lorne Michaels.

From the HR:

"Bryant will star as Annie, described as a fat young woman who wants to change her life—but not her body. Annie is trying to make it as a journalist while juggling bad boyfriends, sick parents, and a perfectionist boss and as the world around her deems her not good enough because of her weight. She starts to realize that she’s as good as anyone else, and acts on it."

Production is set to begin soon in... Portland? Aside from that glaring error, The Stranger wishes Lindy a hearty congrats. We'll be watching.
