Where is the Story Taken From?
The storyline of Life&Beth is interestingly a semi-autobiographical work of Amy Schumer. The story is taken partly from her own life experience. In an interview, she said how her father has restored an old farm from the 1790s and how much she loved going to that farm as a kid. But when her family went bankrupt, they had to sell the place.
When Schumer became successful, she decided to buy the place and bring it back to life as her father did. When she was pregnant, she often went and spent days on the farm daydreaming and having a peaceful break, and during that time, the story came to her mind, and she knew that she had to write it down and make it into a show.
