From Frankie Shaw, SMILF takes an honest comedic look at a single, 20-something whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of young, single motherhood. Adapting her Sundance Jury Prize winning short film, Shaw executive produces, writes, directs and stars in this raw look at the challenges of doing it on your own, particularly when you aren’t done growing up yourself. Bridgette juggles many part-time jobs (while harboring secret longings to play professional basketball) to make ends meet. The show explores issues of generational dysfunction, class, race, politics, sexual violence, co-parenting and above all, the possibility for a young broke single mom to dream of something better.
Starring Frankie Shaw (Mr. Robot), Miguel Gomez (The Strain) & Rosie O’Donnell.
