Published

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.

Multiple Emmy winner Rosie O’Donnell co-stars in her first series regular TV role as Tutu, Bridgette’s prideful Southie mother who lives by her own set of rules.
