Fans of hit comedy series Catastrophe will be happy to learn Amazon Prime Video are to produce another series from its creator and star.
According to Deadline, the as of yet untitled comedy will focus on a socially awkward, broke, single woman (Horgan) who launches a self-help company and recruits a handsome former male gymnast to be the face of it.
Billy Magnussen, who co-starred with Horgan in Game Night, is set to play the lead male role.
John Hamburg, co-writer of Meet the Parents and Zoolander, is penning the series with Horgan, and will work behind the camera.
This news follows Amazon's January announcement that it had closed an exclusive two-year overall deal with Horgan, who along with creating Catastrophe is showrunner on HBO's Divorce and BBC2's Motherland.
The upcoming months should be busy for Horgan as it was also announced last week she will be writing a series tiled Women on the Verge for RTE. It will be a darkly comic tale about three friends whose lives are going in the wrong direction. Horgan, Kerry Condon (Better Call Saul), Eileen Walsh (Maze) and Nina Sosanya (Love Actually) will play the leads.
