Storyline

Bridgette Bird is a smart, scrappy, young single mom trying to navigate life in South Boston with an extremely unconventional family. She struggles to make ends meet, which leads her to impulsive and at times immature decisions. Above all, Bridgette wants to make a better life for her son. SMILF takes on motherhood, co-parenting, and female sexuality through a raw and unfiltered lens. Don't miss this semi-autobiographical half-hour comedy from the creative mind of Frankie Shaw, an original and fresh new female voice. Written by AnonymousB

Trivia

In May 2020, Rosie O'Donnell said during an interview with The Daily Beast's Marlow Stern that the controversy that lead to the show's cancellation was particularly confusing to her, as she "never saw one problem, never heard one complaint" during her two seasons on the set. She explained that after filming wrapped on Season 2, she received a call from Samara Weaving, who claimed that star and showrunner Frankie Shaw made her feel uncomfortable while filming a nude sex scene. O'Donnell brought the allegation to a producer's attention, and after ABC Studios conducted an investigation about it and other allegations against Shaw, Showtime canceled SMILF just four episodes into its second season. O'Donnell said that while she believes Weaving's allegation of impropriety, she suggested it could have been caused by a personal dispute between Weaving and Shaw. "It seemed like a big mess of a girl fight." See more »

Very Provocative New Series
5 November 2017 | by wantsomeyouSee all my reviews

Stumbled across this new series and watched the first episode out of curiosity. It was hilarious....to me at least. Very real life. It will definitely not leave you bored. The lead character is likable and honestly, we can all relate to her. I would recommend giving this series a try.
