Starz Snags Seasons 1 & 2 of Comedy Series ‘Minx’
January 12, 2023
Starz Jan. 12 announced it has picked up seasons one and two of the critically acclaimed comedy series “Minx,” one of the victims of HBO Max’s late-2022 content slashing. Starz will exclusively premiere the second season of the show, which is set in 1970s Los Angeles.
Ellen Rapoport, “Minx” creator, showrunner and executive producer, said in a statement, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Starz family, and for the opportunity to introduce ‘Minx’ to a brand-new audience. We’ve found the perfect home. Our writers, cast and crew have created something truly special in season two, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“We have always felt this show would be a perfect fit for our brand with our dedication to narratives by, about and for women,” Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz, said in a statement. “We’re excited to welcome Ellen and the talented ‘Minx’ team to the network and can’t wait to bring its passionate fans the second season.”
