Somebody Somewhere: We Speak to Series Star Bridget Everett

Dept. of Chats and Confabs


In this Goggler exclusive we got the chance to sit down with comedian, actress, singer, writer, and cabaret performer, Bridget Everett, to talk about her new HBO series Somebody Somewhere, what it was like to make a show about middle America, mining personal trauma and experiences for entertainment, and working with the Duplass brothers.

Somebody Somewhere follows Sam, a true Kansan on the surface, but, beneath it all, struggling to fit the hometown mold. Grappling with loss and acceptance, singing is Sam’s saving grace and leads her on a journey to discover herself and a community of outsiders who don’t fit in but don’t give up, showing that finding your people, and finding your voice, is possible. Anywhere. Somewhere.

Starring and executive produced by comedian and singer Bridget Everett, the seven-episode HBO original comedy series Somebody Somewhere also features Jeff Hiller (Nightcap) as Joel, Mary Catherine Garrison (HBO’s Veep) as Tricia Miller, Danny McCarthy (The Ballad of Buster Scroggs) as Rick, Sam’s quietly unremarkable brother-in-law and Mike Hagerty (HBO’s Lucky Louie) as family patriarch Ed Miller.

The first episode of Somebody Somewhere is now available to watch on HBO Max (in the United States) and HBO GO (in Malaysia). New episodes drop weekly.
