If you ever want to watch a really great comedy drama, then check out Life & Beth on Disney+.
Starring Amy Schumer, Life and Beth is not your typical laugh-out-loud sitcom but rather a journey through the lead character’s mid-life crisis, with plenty of humor thrown in.
Beth is a woman whose seemingly perfect life starts to unravel, revealing the not-so-glamorous underbelly of her reality.
It’s a narrative about self-discovery, with Schumer’s character confronting past and present to find a future that sincerely resonates with her.
