Per the series’ official logline, the series aims to tell the “awe-inspiring untold story of how Joan Rivers persevered through near suicide and professional abyss to rebuild herself and her career to become a global icon.”

Rivers, who passed away at the age of 81 in September 2014 spent 50 years in show business, where she was likely best known for her audacious, often cruel, red carpet commentary.

In addition to starring as the famed television icon, Kathryn Hahn will also sere as executive producer on The Comeback Girl alongside Greg Berlanti.

Currently, there’s no word on when we might expect to see The Comeback Girl debut via Showtime.
