Hard-core mother fundraisers
When Jess’s only son starts school it’s a big learning curve, for Jess. She’s thrown into a world of know-it-all, judgmental, passive aggressive women whose primary purpose is to promote their child as the most gifted, most brilliant and most bestest child ever. And let’s not even start on the teachers.
Joining the Junior Fundraising Committee to help establish herself in the school community, Jess hopes that her efforts might also help her to find some companionship, but alpha mum Heather is more interested in making money than making friends. Luckily, super chill mother-of-five Hine is there to play peacemaker. Together the mums must reach a ridiculous fundraising goal, with limited resources and a poor grasp of teamwork. Things aren’t looking super great.
Mean Mums is a family friendly sitcom following the misadventures of an unlikely gang of misfit mums navigating fundraising, parenting and friendship. Starring Morgana O’Reilly (Neighbours, Housebound, Sunny Skies), Anna Jullienne (800 Words, The Blue Rose, Shortland Street) and Aroha Rawson (Super City, Mahana, Only in Aotearoa). From the producers of Westside, Outrageous Fortune, 800 Words and Shortland Street and written and created by Amanda Alison (Wellington Paranormal, Lucy Lewis Can’t Lose, Sunny Skies,).
