Creators Of Web Series ‘I Mom So Hard’ Link Up With Producer Rob Thomas For CBS Pilot

21 September 2017 2:18 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Two of the internet's sauciest moms are making a move to bring their shtick to TV. Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, the two women behind the web series I Mom So Hard, have landed a pilot production commitment from CBS, which they will fulfill with help from Veronica Mars and Party Down creator Rob Thomas.

I Mom So Hard is a simple and straightforward web series in which Hensley and Smedley sit in front of a camera and chat about the sort of issues that are relevant to mothers such as themselves. Their topics of conversation range from swimsuits to body hair to post-partum depression, but no what they choose to discuss, they approach their subjects with a combination of humor and honesty. These videos have proved popular enough to bring about 58,000 subscribers and more than five million views to the official I Mom So Hard YouTube channel.

TV Adaptation of “I Mom So Hard” Web Series Coming to CBS

21 September 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“I Mom So Hard’s” Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley: imomsohard.com

We approve so hard. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley’s popular web series “I Mom So Hard” is on its way to CBS as a multi-cam comedy. The “sizable pilot production commitment” will see series’ creators Hensley and Smedley topline the new show and write it with Michelle Nader (“2 Broke Girls”). Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”) is set to executive produce alongside Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge.

Launched in spring 2016, “I Mom So Hard” features comedians and friends Hensley (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Smedley (“Literally So Busy”) riffing on their kids, husbands, and the sometimes-absurd minutiae that goes into being a mother who is also a person. The expense of children’s princess costumes, fitting exercise into a packed schedule, and the horrors of the holidays are all topics Hensley and Smedley have covered in bite-sized episodes.

The duo are also taking “I Mom So Hard” on the road. Their “Mom’s Night Out: Summer Break Tour” kicks off October 10 in Kitchener, Ontario.

A female-led comedy is past due at CBS. The network made headlines this spring when it unveiled its sausage party of a fall 2017 lineup and when CEO Les Moonves shrugged off the criticism, saying, “The best pilots went at the end of the day and we think our track record is Ok.”

You can watch “I Mom So Hard” videos on the series’ website or on YouTube. Check out a recent ep, “I Princess So Hard,” below.

TV Adaptation of “I Mom So Hard” Web Series Coming to CBS was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling.
