Stan has announced it will be airing SMILF in line with the US.
SMILF, the new eight-episode comedy series, is a raw, honest look at the life of a 20-something single mom from quadruple threat Frankie Shaw (Mr. Robot).
The series, based on Shaw’s Sundance Film Festival Jury Award-winning short film of the same name, takes a comedic look at the life of Bridgette Bird (Shaw), a young Boston Southie whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of working class single motherhood.
Shaw brings her singular, unapologetic point of view as star, writer, executive producer and director of the semi-autobiographical comedy series. The cast includes multiple Emmy® winner Rosie O’Donnell in her first series regular TV role as Bridgette’s prideful, outspoken Southie mother, along with Miguel Gomez, Samara Weaving, and Alexandra and Anna Reimer. Guest stars include Connie Britton, Mark Webber and Raven Goodwin.
A sneak peek of SMILF will be available October 23 with new episodes premiering weekly from 13 November exclusively on Stan.
