There's a new TV show in town, written by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon and stars Adlon as “Sam Fox” - a working single [actor] mom, trying to raise her kids in a world not quite as filtered as some other T.V show's might like us to believe in!
With real-life-like situations, comedic thrills and life's ups and downs thrown all around, Better Things is right up my alley and almost feels like my life put on screen if I weren't married, and if I actually acted for a living!
There is something so great about comedy that comes from real-life and Better Things is semi-autobiographical in that it reflects some of the real-life of Pamela Adlon and hits home with me as I have zero filter and call things like they are, too.
I've always adored Louis C.K. and loved all of his family-related skits and I am sure [with him on board] that this show is going to be a big success. His matter-of-fact, dry and reality-based situational humor gets me every single time and I can't wait to see what he and Adlon bring to the table here as the series progresses!

Sound familiar? It does to me! I'm often saying that I should write a T.V. show based on the ridiculous situations that come with every-day family goings-on, because there are MANY that happen, and many we laugh about in private, but to see a reflection of real life parenting and its struggles [that we all identify with if we're honest with ourselves] is just exhilarating.
There is much power in identifying with a character, and I've definitely been there, which I'm sure you have at some point, too. Better Things is going to have us all nodding our head and laughing in agreement.
