Sitcom pilot from Graham Linehan and Sharon Horgan. Meet the Alpha Mums, headed by queen bee Amanda. There is also chaotic Liz, events organiser Julia and stay-at-home dad Kevin.
Meet the alpha mums, headed by Amanda, very much the queen bee. Everything is organised, clean and sparkly - even the kitchen cork board is a statement of success. At the other end of the spectrum, we meet Liz, who is totally chaotic and feels the kids should enjoy free expression - if they want to do kamikaze jumps off the sofa, she drags a mattress round for safety. Somewhere between Amanda and Liz is Julia - she is organised - she has to be as she is a successful events organiser - but when her mother Marion decides she is no longer going to be the free child-sitter and school-run taxi, Julia finds her organisation skills are taxed and nowhere near the level of the alpha mums. Also in the mix is Kevin - he is the stay-at-home dad, who, rather than fighting against that, is embracing it with gusto - much to the irritation of the other mums.
This is mothers and they really are - coping or not - competitive and helpful. If the Pulling girls had kids, this is what it would be like.
