Plot Synopsis

Meet the Alpha Moms, 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 of 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 Moms. 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. MOTHERLAND had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as SundanceNow released all seven episodes, including the 2016 pilot and the six-episode 2017 BBC Two series.
