According to the synopsis of the show, Hannah took Douglas ‘for a walk across the planet, finishing up in Los Angeles, and recording her second stand-up special’.
Douglas was nominated for two Primetime Emmys in 2020.
Hannah won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special and a prestigious Peabody award, both for Nanette, in 2019.
