In terms of coming-of-age comedies, there has certainly been a number of them told onscreen over the years. Most recently, TV watchers have been treated to series like The Wonder Years, Derry Girls, Reservation Dogs and Grown-ish. Now joining the mix is the latest sitcom Boo, Bitch.
What makes this new series stand out from among its peers is that it follows a teenage girl’s ascension in popularity after she dies. While alive, she lived mostly on the safe side of things, going unnoticed by most of the kids in school. Now that she’s dead and a ghost (one that people can actually see), she’s determined to shake things up and become everything she wasn’t before her untimely demise.
