Amazon will premiere One Mississippi, a comedy, or “traumedy,” as out comedian and the show's star Tig Notaro describes it, on September 9.

In One Mississippi, Notaro's character returns to Mississippi after her mother's premature death.

During a Television Critics Association (TCA) panel over the weekend, Notaro described the events in the series as “85% real.”

“My mother died. I had cancer. I had an intestinal disease and couldn't eat. I went through a breakup. I had pneumonia. The list goes on,” she said of 2012.

Of her character's sexuality, Notaro said that she might be the first lesbian lead who does not come out gay during the series, a reference to Ellen DeGeneres, who outed her character on Ellen and herself in 1997.
