”Motherland” is already two seasons into its run on BBC in the UK, but it won’t be long before Sharon Horgan’s BAFTA-nominated series is available for U.S. viewers. Deadline reports that the sitcom has been acquired by Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ premium video streaming service, and is scheduled to make its exclusive U.S. debut on May 10.
Created and written by “Catastrophe” co-creator and star Horgan along with Holly Walsh (“Dead Boss”) and Helen and Graham Linehan (“The It Crowd”), the comedy centers on Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin), “who always wanted her kids to be brought up like she was — by her mother. But instead her mom has abandoned her, so now she is thrown head first into the Motherland, where it’s sink or swim. While she struggles with work and life she meets a full array of hands-on parents,” including Alpha Moms and stay-at-home dads.
