Loosely based on Lindy West’s memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, Hulu’s new comedy series Shrill stars Aidy Bryant as Annie, “a fat young woman who wants to change her life — but not her body.” Ahead of the first season hitting Hulu today, we spoke with the men of Shrill—Ian Owens, Luka Jones, and John Cameron Mitchell—about the show, letting go of shame, and dealing with online trolls.
