Although Shameless has been a top performer for Showtime, the dramedy is currently in its eighth season and can’t last forever. This year, the cable channel’s introduced a couple of new comedies — White Famous and SMILF. Can these new TV series bring on the laughs and reel in the viewers? Will SMILF be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A semi-autobiographical series starring creator, writer, and director Frankie Shaw, SMILF also stars Rosie O’Donnell and Miguel Gomez. The Showtime cast also includes Anna Chanel Reimer, Alexandra Mary Reimer, Samara Weaving, Connie Britton, Blake Clark, Raven Goodwin, Kimberly Crossman, Mark Webber, and Mia Kaplan. The story centers on Bridgette Bird (Shaw), a working class, South Boston single mother. Although she is striving to provide a better beginning for her son (played by the Reimer twins), Larry Bird (named for the former Boston Celtics player), she still has to do some growing up of her own.
