Minnesota: Lady Dynamite

Minnesota has some great television shows that are set there, but unfortunately not a ton of them are on Netflix. Hulu got lucky enough to scoop up the hit series Fargo (set partly in Duluth) and we’re still holding out hope that Netflix will re-do the Plum Creek-inspired Little House on the Prairie with period rich detail. For now, though, Netflix viewers will have to get their fix of The North Star State via Lady Dynamite.

Have you seen this recently canceled Netflix comedy? Lady Dynamite follows Maria Bamford, a comedian who moves back to Los Angeles after a stint away to treat her bipolar disorder.

While the show is set primarily in California, it has strong ties to Minnesota. Lady Dynamite is inspired by Maria Bamford’s real life story and she herself spent quite a bit of time in Minnesota. The series briefly visits The North Star State during its run and its influence is frequently felt as Bamford’s humor and life outlook were both shaped by her time spent there. She grew up in Duluth, Minnesota and later attended the University of Minnesota, where she got her Bachelor of Arts in creative writing. It was in Minneapolis that she started doing stand-up!
