Motherland starts Tuesday 7th November on BBC Two
Motherland isnâ€™t the public face of motherhood, itâ€™s unromanticised parenting: competition, cafes full of kids, dog-poo bags standing in as replacement lunchboxes…
In episode one Julia moves out of her comfort zone and reluctantly invites the entire class to her kid’s birthday party. With her Mum still refusing to help outÂ she relies on Lizâ€™s party hacks and Kevinâ€™s entertaining skills. And anyway, she organises events for a living, this will be a breeze!
Motherland (6x30â€™) is written by Graham Linehan (Count Arthur Strong, Father Ted), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Pulling), Helen Linehan and Holly Walsh (Dead Boss). It is a co-production between Delightful Industries (part of the Twofour Group) and Merman and is produced by Richard Boden for Delightful and executive produced by Clelia Mountford for Merman.
