Motherland

The stresses and strains of middle-class motherhood are exquisitely skewered in this comedy series written and created by Sharon Horgan and produced by her London-based company Merman. British actress Anna Maxwell-Martin is a whirlwind as the potty-mouthed, persistently exasperated Julia and parenting never looked so hellishly hilarious.
