Branden Miller, the brains behind the crass and cantankerous comedy gem Joanne the Scammer, has revealed that he has found a friend in Netflix.
During a recent interview the actor revealed that after watching the character blossom online for over decade (he got his start as one of YouTube‘s first influencers) he has now caught the support of the streaming platform.
Miller told Janet Mock on the podcast that “someone from Netflix” was currently writing the show. The show’s exact format is still somewhat hazy, with Miller admitting, “I can’t even speak that far ahead because I don’t even know.”
Miller added: “If you know Joanne on Instagram, there are little snippets of her life” in which Joanne appears “right in the middle of a scam. So I’m capturing that. Instagram gives you one minute of that, the show will give you the whole storyline.”
If true, his union with the platform would see Joanne’s tale stand alongside the projects ‘Black Mirror‘, ‘Orange is the New Black‘ , ‘13th‘, ‘House of Cards‘ and ‘Luke Cage’ which all have soared since being introduced to the critical mass as exclusives.
