The Other F Word Season 2 (Now Streaming)
You get to a certain age when you start to realize that many of the new shows on television don’t seem to hit home with you anymore. With my 40th birthday approaching in October, I don’t really connect with shows that are geared towards those with little children or just discovering the freedom of being an adult. I recently discovered The Other F Word and found myself laughing along as these women tackle issues that mid-life brings.
The Other F Word is a hit comedy series that has launched and can be streamed on Amazon. It is a part of growing movement in film, television, and digital content targeting female friendships and women who are no longer sporting the age of 20 or 30. It focuses on mid-life and the special circumstances that being a women during this stage of life including the following: empty-nesters, death of a spouse, raising teenagers, and sudden life changes later in life.

Judy Gold, Comedy Central EVP and comedian will be joining Caytha Jentis as an Executive Producer. Cayha Jentis, the show creator, writer, and executive producer notes, “It’s so much more than one woman’s journey of self-discovery.The supporting characters are women who all find themselves a bit disoriented, discovering they live in an unfamiliar world after their kids are grown, after spouses die, and after not having worked for a couple of decades.”

While Jentis wrote the show, she had help from other moms behind the scenes and women entrepreneurs. One of the scenes was co-written by Emmy award-winning tv writer Judy Rothman Rofe who authored Neurotic Parent, while the musical within the series is written by the award-winning playwriting team Pam Weiler Grayson and Alice Jankell.
