Me: Whatcha doing Wednesday night February 11th? You: Gee Brian, I'm not sure, I haven't planned that far ahead yet. Me: Great! Come check out the web series I starred in called The Motherload. You: That sounds like the best thing ever Me: It is You: Where is it? What time? Me: It's at the Plaza Theatre on Ponce de Leon Avenue at 7:30 pm You: Isn't that the place next to Urban Outfitters that's always showing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Me: That's the place You: Where can I buy tickets? Me: I'm glad you ask. Tickets can be bought right here: http://www.motherloadseries.com/#!tickets/c15ts You: Cool, If i'm not working, I'll be there! Me: Take off. You only live once, do you really want to spend all of your time doing (insert that thing that you hate doing but have to do at your job here)? You: Not really. You're right Brian, Life is about more than just (whatever that thing is). I should make time for me, by coming to see your premiere. That's great life advice. You're so smart Me: Aww, shucks (these imaginary conversations are part of reason I love my friends) What's it About? The Mother Load web series follows Carrie, a by-the-book first time parent, as she stumbles through the first year of her baby’s life. She finds comradery and support in her best friend, Astrid- a parent with two kids, who’s “embrace the chaos” philosophy often conflicts with Carrie’s drive to do everything right the first time. Surrounding Carrie and Astrid are a diverse group of friends and family, including: Andrew, Carrie’s even-keel husband and partner, and Kurt, Astrid’s well-meaning husband who is always ready to offer up his own peculiar blend of Star Wars-infused wisdom. Along the way, they encounter a variety of moms with their own methods and idiosyncrasies. Although they may disagree on the best way to raise children, they all have one thing in common. They’re just trying to do the best they can. Who's it for? The Mother Load gives all parents, especially moms, an opportunity to see their story told in a way that captures their day to day triumphs and failures with humor, without over sentimentalizing the tricky business of raising kids- while still maintaining your sanity and your self. Because we are a web series, we have the ability to tackle controversial subjects, such as breastfeeding in public and home birth, that would ordinarily be difficult to explore on network television. Best of all, The Mother Load offers up its hilarity in bite-sized, ten minute chunks- just short enough to enjoy while your kids are napping, or easily watched in the time it takes your toddler to unravel the toilet paper roll in your bathroom!
