Oh well hello there, and welcome to your midweek Pop Culture Fix!


+ Aubrey Plaza’s got a new dark comedy, Olga Dies Dreaming, coming to Hulu!

Plaza will star in the title role as Olga, a renowned wedding planner whose surface successes mask a darker interior. For Olga, the pursuit of perfection has become a compulsive survival mechanism as she tries to climb as far from her past as she can. Still, she can’t shake the feeling that the important people she knows don’t see her as their equals and this nagging sense that her success is an illusion always leaves her wanting more.

+ The Chi has been renewed for a fifth season.

+ Carmen’s calling it: Charlotte’s kid is queer in the new SATC.

+ Ashley Nicole Black on double Emmy nominations for writing Black Lady Sketch Show and Amber Ruffin Show.

+ King Princess is teaming up with… Birkenstock?? It’s all happening 90s gays!
