Aidy Bryant inks new deal with Universal

If you can believe it, this month Aidy Bryant began her TENTH season on SNL.  Had you asked me to guess I would have said sixth.

So she seems pretty valuable to the company and that usually translates to a pretty good deal at contract time.

“Aidy has been a beloved member of our NBCUniversal family for many years,” said Jim Donnelly, EVP Comedy Development at UTV. “Audiences have not only been entertained by her for nine seasons on SNL but also delighted in her writing and performing across all sorts of TV and film projects. Aidy is a colorful storyteller and brilliant producer who brings a fresh take to everything she does, and UTV is happy to welcome Aidy and her creative lens to this exciting partnership.”

This wont be her first foray into other projects.  She co-created, starred in, wrote, directed and exec produced Hulu’s Shrill, which recently ended after its third season.

No word on exactly what she’ll be creating, but you can be assured it will be full of laughs and have Lorne Michaels fingerprints all over it!
