Actor Chris Witaske, who is perhaps best known for his role in the Netflix series Love, stands behind the bill. Lauren Ash (COM)Superstore) plays the title aunt Diane Dunbrowski in the show. Diane has “always been and always will be a life of fun, even when the fun is long over” and “continues to live every day as if it were a 1980s Styx bus,” according to Netflix. The cast also includes Rory O’Malley, RuPaul Charles and Jill Talley, as well as Chicago’s fun aunt creators Witaske, Jon Barinholtz and Katie Rich.
Of course, the Chicago Party Aunt is far from the first Twitter account to be turned into a TV show. $ # *! My dad says aired on CBS one season ten years ago. Very British problems, based on an account that entertains stereotypical British clumsiness, and ran several short seasons.
