The trailer begins with a voiceover of Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) on The Gordon Ford Show, where she teases what’s next for her stand-up comedy career. “I want a big life,” she says. “I want to break every single rule there is.”
The clip goes on to show a montage of scenes featuring Midge doing more comedy shows, greeting fans and co-parenting with her ex-husband, Joel (Michael Zegen). She also vents to her manager, Susie (Alex Borstein), about the future of her career. And as always, Susie is ready for stardom.
“It’s two steps forward, three steps back,” Midge says. “And I’m tired of it.” To which Susie responds, “This is it. This is the break. They’ll see you for what you are: a goddamn star.”
The trailer concludes with Midge saying, “I’m going to get this. You’ll see.”
