Violet Young & Grace Power Premiere New Show 'Life & Beth'

Violet Young and Grace Power snap a photo together at the premiere of their new Hulu series Life & Beth held at SVA Theater on Wednesday (March 16) in New York City.

The young actresses portray Young Beth and Young Liz, respectively.

Also seen at the premiere were their co-stars Amy Schumer, who plays adult Beth, Laura Benanti and Oliver Stern, as well as Kathryn Gallagher.

Here’s a synopsis: Beth’s life would look pretty great on paper. Impressive to everyone she grew up with. She makes a good living as a wine distributor. She’s in a long term relationship with a successful guy and lives in Manhattan. When a sudden incident forces Beth to engage with her past her life changes forever.

Through flashbacks to her teen self, Beth starts to learn how she became who she is and who she wants to become. We’ll go on her journey towards building a bigger, bolder and more authentic life. Learning to express herself and living in an intentional way. A trip down memory lane is a strong source of trauma, comedy and moving forward.

The series is written, directed, executive produced by Amy Schumer.

Life & Beth debuts on Hulu TOMORROW (March 18).
