'Shrill' Author Says Boss Character Not Based on Dan Savage

The new Hulu series Shrill, starring Aidy Bryant, is streaming now and fans might be wondering who inspired some of the characters.

The show is based on writer Lindy West‘s book “Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman.” She previously worked for Dan Savage at the Seattle blog The Stranger, where something happened that was used as a storyline for the show.

Lindy wrote an article called “Hello, I am Fat” and she called out Savage for shaming overweight people. He responded in a post called, “Hello I’m not the Enemy.” While this does happen to characters Annie (Bryant) and Gabe (John Cameron Mitchell) in the series, Lindy says Gabe is not based on Dan.

Dan and I patched it up immediately and so there’s no conflict, but it’s funny that I’m answering questions about it,” she told Page Six. “I was feeling really nervous because I hadn’t talked to him about the show when I knew people were going to be asking about it and assuming that the character is him.”

They actually ran into each other on a plane this month and talked about the show. She said, “We actually had this really lovely talk and he was really supportive and really excited about the show and he laughed about how we’re supposed to be in a fight.”

Elizabeth Banks is sharing her new series Shrill!

The 45-year-old executive producer stepped out for Hulu’s panel during the 2019 Winter TCA Tour on Monday (February 11) in Pasadena, Calif.

She was joined by the show’s star Aidy Bryant as they discussed the upcoming show, based on Lindy West‘s book Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman.

The series follows an overweight young woman who seeks change in her life but not in her body.

“I hope it doesn’t surprise anyone, I’m not always comfortable in my own skin either, and I remember when I first came to Hollywood. My very first meeting in Hollywood was with an agent who told me I should get a boob job — and I left the meeting,” Elizabeth said during the panel.

Elizabeth and Aidy were also joined by the rest of the cast including Lolly Adefope, Ian Owens, John Cameron Mitchell and Luka Jones.

Shrill premieres on March 15th on Hulu.

Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love.”
