Oh, wait, I already said that. In Russian Doll, Lyonne stars as Nadia Vulvokov, a New York City software engineer who finds herself in a never-ending circle of dying over and over again in a clever spin on Groundhog Day, continually going back to her thirty-sixth birthday party. Headland (Bachelorette, Sleeping with Other People) and Lyonne (Orange Is the New Black, Antibirth) have each written and directed episodes, which also feature Charlie Barnett, Dascha Polanco, Burt Young, Brendan Sexton III, Elizabeth Ashley, and Tompkins Square Park. Lyonne and Headland will be speaking with New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum, who shared her views on the series here.
