Before she was ever part of the Fifty Shades franchise, Dakota Johnson showed comedy chops in series such as Ben And Kate. She's gotten to be funny more recently with films such as The High Note, and she's returning to small screen comedy with new Amazon mockumentary Rodeo Queens.

I Am Not Okay With This co-creator Christy Hall is behind the new series, which has Portlandia co-creator Carrie Brownstein in the director's chair. The show will follow an ensemble of women as they compete for the title of Rodeo Queen, which sees them competing in horse riding, background knowledge and public speaking alongside the more traditional (and outdated) beauty pageant aspects. Given the creative team behind the show, we'd expect those elements to be tweaked or satirised.

The show is at an early stage and the writers' room is only now opening, so we wouldn't expect this to premiere before next year at the earliest. Johnson has The Friend awaiting release and has snagged roles in Olivia Wilde's next film, Don't Worry Darling and Maggie Gyllenhaal's directorial debut, The Lost Daughter.
