(from truTV's press release, January 2020) It's Personal with Amy Hoggart will premiere Wednesday, February 26 at 10pm on truTV. The new series, featuring under-qualified and over-confident Brit Amy Hoggart, seeks to make Americans feel better by attacking issues that make their lives - and Amy's - harder. It's Personal with Amy Hoggart, executive produced by Samantha Bee, is part of truTV's line-up that's bold and fresh, showcasing audacious content with relatable characters and laugh-out-loud moments. "I'm trying to be a better person!", proclaims Hoggart. "And good people help people! Whatever the outcome, please know that my intentions were kind. I'm so grateful to Sam and truTV for this incredible opportunity to save people and change their lives. One day, I hope someone is kind enough to do the same for me!" "I am so happy everyone outside of our offices now gets to benefit from Amy's extraordinary knowledge that is not based on any medical training," says Samantha Bee. "Amy is extremely smart and talented so I know her show can make an impact on the emotional distress Americans are currently facing. Do they give out PhDs to TV hosts? No? I bet they will after a season of this show." Although Hoggart doesn't have a license, PhD, or any actual qualifications whatsoever, in each episode of It's Personal with Amy Hoggart, a docu-style comedy series, she attempts to untangle people's everyday issues such as shame, revenge, anxiety, grief, and... Miami. Each episode, viewers learn how Amy's personal issues echo those of her clients' in unexpected, ridiculous ways. As a self-proclaimed "empath and really nice person," Amy goes to absurd lengths to get her clients - all real people, not actors - to feel just a little bit better. She's desperate to help, and it definitely shows. Hoggart will host and serve as executive producer of the series while she continues her duties as a correspondent on TBS's own Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, where she is well known for her pieces on Brexit and Scotland, and generally using her accent to make Americans think she's more intelligent than she is. Previously, Amy wrote and starred in the faux-reality series Almost Royal.

"OUTCRY is a riveting depiction of a criminal investigation and conviction that raise more questions than they answer, with so many twists and turns in the case that it feels too dramatic to be believed," said Stephen Espinoza, President, Sports & Event Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. "This gripping film explores the often murky area between facts and perceptions, motives and biases, and ultimately, innocence and guilt. Pat Kondelis and his team have created an powerful docuseries that pursues the truth with integrity and seeks clarity in a confounding case." Few people ever experience the momentum that Kelley had going into his senior year of high school in Leander, Texas. That all changed in the summer of 2013 when he was arrested and convicted of sexual assault of a four-year-old boy. Kelley was sentenced to 25 years in state prison with no possibility for parole for the heinous crime. But that wasn't the end. A groundswell of support emerged for Kelley, calling into question the investigation, the prosecution's tactics and ultimately, the validity of the conviction. OUTCRY is a searing examination of the criminal case that sent Kelley to prison and left his family and supporters searching for answers. Filmmakers capture a divided community and follow the principal participants on both sides of the appeals process as they work in pursuit of opposing truths. Over the course of three years, the series unfolds as Kelley's fate hangs in the balance and new evidence emerges amid mounting criticism of the Williamson County justice system.
