Television has been redefined thanks to the internet, and along with that redefinition comes shows like Take My Wife, reflecting the real lives of actual living LGBT people.
In the web series, comedians Rhea Butcher and her real-life wife, Cameron Esposito, blur the line between fiction and reality, reflecting their actual experience as a married couple.
Though Esposito is the more veteran comedian, Butcher has the more sympathetic and perhaps funnier role, at least initially. The show premieres today on the streaming service Seeso and has already been reviewed positively in The New York Times, but don't read the review if you want to be surprised.
It will be exciting to see this series develop — hooray for female comedians! Check out the first episode below.
