Sami is a Musical/Comedy TV Series streaming on Prime Video on April 23, 2023, with all 10 episodes being released on the same date. Sami follows the adventures of Sami Sherman a young actress trying to make it as an aspiring Broadway actress/singer in New York City as she navigates through her daily life of auditioning, temp jobs, dating, and all of life's adventures with support from her BFF and her family. There is an attempt to harken back to the endearing physical comedy of classic self-contained episodes in sitcoms of the Golden Age, especially the 1970's. There is an original song in every episode and the majority of 14 original songs were recorded live by the Broadway performers that populate the cast, 2 songs had to be recorded in a recording studio and one song was looped.  

Sami was made specifically for the four main actors to showcase her talents and is loosely based on stories that all up and coming struggling actors experience. This is Cindy Williams last performance, as she passed away three months after the filming had finished.
