Kathryn Hahn to Play the Late Joan Rivers in Showtime Limited Series

Emmy nominated actress Kathryn Hahn is going to portray the late Joan Rivers in the upcoming Showtime limited series The Comeback Girl!

The show will take place after the cancellation of The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers, which coincided with the death of her husband, Edgar Rosenberg, by suicide.

The logline of the show, via Variety, is as follows: “Trailblazer. Adored. Cruel. Diva. Joan Rivers had a life like no other. At age 54, she was a superstar comedienne…and then it all fell apart. THE COMEBACK GIRL is 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.” Kathryn will also executive produce.

Joan died at the age of 81 on September 4, 2014 after a routine endoscopy. Her cause of death was revealed a few weeks later.
