Okay so have I mentioned that I have a show? It’s pretty big and crazy news and I’ve been slaving over it trying to make sure that it’s so f-ing funny and good that I can insure a long happy career (being that I’m in my 40’s).
This whole deal has been brewing for a year. First I got to make a pilot which was obviously exciting. But then, the show got picked up for 26 episodes which is HUGE! So very quickly I went into production and got to work producing shows along with a whole group of talented writers and producers.
Here’s what the show is about: Motherhood. The funny, edgy, ridiculous, crazy, exhausting side of being a mom. But above all else it’s smart. My co-ep, Hugh Fink is an old friend of mine and a veteran writer for SNL (and hilarious comedian) and our head writer worked on SNL for seven years as well.
Every show starts out with a monologue about our topic of the day be it those first months after you bring your baby home from the hospital or traveling with kids we find the funny. We make fun of old commercials and videos (a la Tosh) and I’ve gone out to shoot a lot of field pieces where I ask moms embarrassing questions. There is also a hidden camera segment. Each show ends with a “Momspiration” which is a slightly Jack Handyish thought to get you through the day such as “Today is a new day…would it kill you to start by showering?”
There’s also a panel discussion with three funny moms (and a few random dads ((including my fabulous brother) on every episode.
The show premieres Monday Oct 1st!!!!! It’s on Nick Jr. (which at night will now be NickMom) and please please please watch it and tell your friends. You can also go to www.NickMom.com and check out the content under TV (like it on FB).
