Natasha Leggero on Trump, Marriage, and 'Another Period'

The T-word was heard fairly frequently during comedy sets at this weekend's Colossal Clusterfest in San Francisco, but Natasha Leggero has been talking about a Donald Trump administration since 2011. Her first album, Coke Money , includes a joke about the Apprentice star running for president and transforming the office into a reality show, she reminded reporters during a small Q&A at the festival: "Tonight on The Presidency , who will be eliminated, Iran or North Korea? Text 2457 to cast your vote." Since 2011, Leggero has found professional and personal success. She is co-creator, co-writer, and co-star of Comedy Central's Another Period , about two sisters' attempts to stay rich, youthful, and famous in turn-of-the-(20th)-century Rhode Island. Think Keeping Up with the Kardashians meets Downton Abbey . The third season of the show, currently being edited, should be on the air in early 2018, Leggero said. On the homefront, she married fellow comedian Moshe Kasher in 2015. His Comedy Central late-night show, Problematic , premiered in April. Leggero and Kasher have taken their show on the road in The Endless Honeymoon Tour, which continues throughout the summer. Not surprisingly, they both wind up in each other's acts pretty often. "One thing Moshe told me when we met," Leggero said, "he was like, 'You can say anything you want, I will never care.'" Of course, that's not always the case. "I've dated comedians before who maybe didn't want me to talk about our personal lives, so that's just a nice, generous thing he said to me," she said, before clarifying: "I do not feel the same way."

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of June 13, 2016

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed — or at least be able to fake it — with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   BrainDead (Series Premiere) Monday at 10 p.m. on CBS Why: From the creative team behind The Good Wife comes another intriguing idea: a young Capitol Hill staffer (played by the fantastic Mary Elizabeth Winstead) discovers that bugs are eating the brains of members of Congress. Based on the past few years, that sounds about right. The cast of this "comic-thriller" with a sci-fi edge also includes Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub and Broadway star Aaron Tveit. Creators Michelle and Robert King plan to keep episodes as current as possible, changing election-related dialogue up until the last minute and using green screens to slide footage of the presidential race onto TVs in the scenes. It's unclear whether a country wrapped up in such a theatrical election cycle will be attracted to or repelled by a new political satire, but if anyone can convince viewers to commit, it's the people behind Kalicia. Prepare to talk about: How dumb politicians are; how dysfunctional politicians are; how terrible politicians are; how self-serving politicians are.   Another Period (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central Why: They're the Kardashians, but in 1902. Sounds insane, but as Season 1 proved, this is a genius concept. Ugh, becoming famous for no reason was such an ordeal at the turn of the (last) century, without sex tapes and Twitter beef to speed things along. Beyond this sharp premise, Another Period benefits from an extraordinarily talented cast of comedy all-stars: Michael Ian Black, David Wain, and, of course, co-creators Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero. They all shine, but Leggero in particular has crafted the perfect showcase for her charming disdain. Season 2 begins with the sisters getting real talk from Harriet Tubman on how to become more famous. Other illustrious figures in U.S. history will make appearances in upcoming episodes, including Albert Einstein and Eleanor Roosevelt. The show has already been renewed for a third season, so now's the time to hop onboard, peasants. Prepare to talk about: Season 2's incredible cavalcade of guest stars, like Jermaine Clement and Girls MVP Andrew Rannells; Chair's baby.   Orange is the New Black (Season Premiere) Friday at 3 a.m. on Netflix Why: The smartest of the many smart decisions show creator Jenji Kohan made was pulling away from protagonist Piper and spreading the love to more supporting players. You don't need a map and character rundown the way you sometimes do while watching Game of Thrones , but with a sprawling and diverse cast there are enough interesting stories to tell to keep this show going for years. Which is a good thing because it's been renewed through 2019. The challenge is broadening focus without shortchanging the characters. So far, Kohan and co. have nailed it. Among this season's strengths are watching new pairings of actresses who previously shared little screen time, finally establishing an origin story for Maritza (Diane Guerrero), and, of course, the addition of Martha Stewart-inspired Judy King, which prompts some interesting discussions about privilege and racism. Prepare to talk about: Why the writers hate Piper so much; how it might be time to move away from this used-underwear crime ring; prison privatization.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel.
