‘Somebody Somewhere’ Sets a Second Season

HBO’s latest underrated gem, “Somebody Somewhere,” just announced a second season, and that’s very good news. Briefly, it’s a deeply affecting comedy-drama starring cabaret-comic Bridget Everett as a middle-aged woman experiencing a mid-life crisis in her hometown of Manhattan, Kansas. With a roster of perfectly cast character actors like “Upright Citizens Brigade” vet Jeff Hiller as a local gay man who runs a clandestine queer open mic night and legendary NYC drag king Murray Hill as a soil conservation specialist (there’s a farming subplot), this is the queer show you didn’t know you needed. No word yet on when the second season drops into the HBO lineup, but if this is the first you’ve heard of it then 1) what are you waiting for and 2) there’s time to catch up.
