TV show description:
A comedic series that’s based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, Mrs. Fletcher is a dual coming-of-age story that chronicles the personal and sexual journeys of an empty-nest mother and her college freshman son.
As the series begins, Eve Fletcher (Hahn) is a single mother in her 40s who works as the executive director of a senior center. She drops off her only child at college and returns home to a very empty house.
Meanwhile, Eve’s son Brendan (White), a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock, finds that college is a little more complicated than he expected. He struggles to make connections with his more socially and politically aware fellow students.
As mother and son find themselves alone for the first time, this series navigates themes of parenthood, sexuality, love, and identity in a cultural moment when attitudes about gender and sex are evolving rapidly.
Episode #7 — Welcome Back
Eve celebrates a life-changing decision; Brendan has an epiphany about college; Sanjay does a good deed.
First aired: December 8, 2019.
