The Cheeky series adaptation, directed by Bryant, Green, and Elovic, is a refreshingly honest, sometimes obscene collection of first-person interviews about everything bodily told by comedians, celebrities, bus drivers, kids, and your grandmother's crankiest friend. Each episode focuses on a topic (Boobs, Sex, Body Hair, Coming of Age) and is animated in the same colorful and painterly style as the book by Elovic.
Bryant and Green executive produce with Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michael's Broadway Video. Elovic and Alice Mathias serve as co-executive producers. Willa Slaughter serves as producer. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, is the studio.
Bryant was a ten-year cast member on Saturday Night Live, where she won three Primetime Emmy nominations, including two nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She also co-created, executive produced, and starred in Hulu's Shrill, earning a Special Award for her performance in its third and final season.
Bryant has signed a comprehensive agreement with Universal Television, which she is working on many projects. She also voiced a role in Human Resources on Netflix's animated series and has appeared in several films, including I Feel Pretty, The Big Sick, Broad City, and Girls.
Elovic is a New York City illustrator and writer. She is the founder of @thecheekyblog [instagram.com], an online platform through which she combats the disgruntled shame we have all had in our bodies. Her films have been featured by The New Yorker, Cosmopolitan, and Teen Vogue.
Green was a two-time WGA Award-winning and five-time Emmy-nominated Supervising Writer on Saturday Night Live. In 2015, she performed at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. In addition, Green was the artistic director of Hammerkatz during her time at NYU and later was the founder and co-head writer for Pop Roulette.
Green is currently working on Showtime's upcoming series I Love This For You, starring Vanessa Bayer, and Annapurna and Michael Showalter's Semi-Formal Productions while he on SNL for six seasons.
