SMILF (Showtime 2017, Frankie Shaw, Miguel Gomez)

SMILF takes a raw and honest comedic look at a single, 20-something from Southie, Bridgette (Frankie Shaw), whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of young, single motherhood.

Adapting her Sundance Film Festival Jury award-winning short film, Shaw stars, write, produces and directs the semi-autobiographical comedy, with Oscar(R) nominee Michael London (Sideways), Emmy(R) nominees Janice Williams (Confirmation), Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Bad Teacher), and Scott King (Difficult People) executive producing.
