After being part of one of the pilots of last year's Sitcom Season, Motherland airs it's full series tonight!

It focuses on all the everyday traumas of mothers and stars Anna Maxwell-Martin, Diane Morgan and Lucy Punch. It is also written by Graham Lineham, Sharon Horgan, Holly Walsh and Helen Lineham!

QUOTE
Motherland is a show all about navigating the trials and traumas of middle-class motherhood, looking at the competitive and unromantic sides of parenting - not the cute and acceptable public face of motherhood.

We meet the 'Alpha Mums' headed by Amanda (Lucy Punch - The Wedding Video) who is very much the Queen Bee: everything in her life is organised, clean and sparkly - even the kіtchen cork board is a statement of success.

At the other end of the spectrum we meet Liz (Diane Morgan - Cunk On Shakespeare) who's totally chaotic and feels the kids should enjoy free expression. Somewhere in the middle is Julia (Anna Maxwell-Martin - Reg), who, when she forgets it’s the school holidays, realises her organisational skills are nowhere near the level of the ‘Alpha Mums’. Also in the mix is Kevin (Paul Ready Utopia), he's the stay-at-home dad, who rather than fighting against that, is embracing it with gusto - much to the irritation of the other mothers.

Motherland is written by Graham Linehan (Count Arthur Strong, Father Ted), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Pulling), Helen Linehan and Holly Walsh (Dead Boss).

SO happy this got a full season! It was the only 'new' pilot I checked out of Sitcom Season due Graham Lineham and Philomena Cunk! Very much looking forward to watching the series.

Will be great to see Diane Morgan in a new role, and to have a main role in a sitcom!
