Bad Mothers heads to Mondays on Nine

Nine will unveil its first Australian drama of 2019 Bad Mothers in two weeks time

An outstanding ensemble cast stars in the series: Melissa George (Charlotte), Tess Haubrich (Sarah),Mandy McElhinney (Maddie), Jessica Tovey (Danielle), Shalom Brune-Franklin (Bindy), Daniel MacPherson (Anton), Don Hany (Kyle), Steve Bastoni (Tom) and Michala Banas (Jesse)

Some mothers seem to have it all. Beautiful homes, the perfect family life and successful careers. But sometimes behind that pristine picket fence there’s a world of dirty little secrets.

Bad Mothers explores the perils and joys of modern motherhood through the lives of five very different friends as they struggle to deal with everything from careers and romance, to playdates and murder.

Sarah’s perfect life as a GP, wife and mother is shattered when she discovers her husband is having an affair. Then her best friend is found murdered and Sarah’s husband, Anton, is arrested.

She finds unlikely sisterhood and support in a ragtag group of outsiders. Buoyed by their support, Sarah is drawn into the chaotic worlds of her new friends: Danielle, an outgoing woman at a career crossroads; Bindy, a wild child party animal; and Maddie, a fierce single mum struggling with a difficult child and an acrimonious custody dispute.

9pm Monday February 18 on Nine.
