DESCRIPTION:
(from SundanceTV's press release, April 2018) Sundance Now, AMC Networks' premium video streaming service, announced today the acquisition of BAFTA-nominated hit British television series "Motherland" from global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), which has worldwide rights to the comedy. The critically-acclaimed series, written and created by Sharon Horgan, Holly Walsh, and Graham and Helen Linehan, will make its exclusive U.S. debut with the first two episodes premiering on the service Thursday, May 10th. New episodes of the half-hour comedy starring BAFTA-winner Anna Maxwell Martin (Philomena, The Night Watch), Lucy Punch ("A Series of Unfortunate Events", Into the Woods, "Ben and Kate"), BAFTA-nominated Diane Morgan ("Cunk on Britain", Me Before You, Funny Cow) and Paul Ready (The Death of Stalin, "The Terror") will stream weekly every Thursday until its season one conclusion on June 14th. The series follows Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin), who always wanted her kids to be brought up like she was -- by her mother. But instead her mom has abandoned her, so now she is thrown head first into the Motherland where it's sink or swim. While she struggles with work and life she meets a full array of hands-on parents including the 'Alpha Moms' headed by Amanda (Lucy Punch), who is the Queen Bee: everything is organized, vacuum-packed and sterile -- even the kitchen chalk board is a statement of success. At the other end of the spectrum is single mom Liz (Diane Morgan), who is low energy but full of life hacks. She has learned to do things her way. Then there's Kevin (Paul Ready). He's the stay-at-home Dad who embraces the Motherland with gusto -- much to the irritation of the other mothers.
