If you come here often, you already know that Midlife Boulevard focuses largely on women in their 40s and 50s who are right in the middle of tackling the challenges that mid-life throws our way, so you can imagine how much I relate to The Other F Word by Caytha Jentis. She is proving firsthand how much midlife does matter, and how unique the challenges can be – something we’ve known for awhile now haven’t we?
After all, not only is it rare to find a show with lead actresses over 40, but not many tackle the interesting challenges of midlife from peri-menopause to dealing with children who are suddenly adults.
This show’s deft and comedic handling of our demographic launched Season 1 into a top spot on Amazon streaming and it was a top-ranked show for over 4 months. And finally, Season 2 is here and free to view on Amazon Prime, even if you aren’t a prime subscriber. Yes, FREE! It’s like Caytha knows how much we are feeling this midlife pinch.
In midlife, you might agree, that there is nothing more important than healthy friendships to help you tackle the ups and downs that you’ll be facing. No one can do it all alone. And in that vein, Caytha Jentis, the creator, writer, and producer of The Other F Word knew her work would be enhanced by bringing in smart voices around her.
One of the scenes was co-written by Emmy award-winning tv writer Judy Rothman Rofe who authored Neurotic Parent, while the musical within the series is written by the award-winning playwriting team Pam Weiler Grayson and Alice Jankell. And the line-up of characters in the show is so fabulous – including Judy Gold, Steve Guttenberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Michael Boatman, Alysia Reiner and Nancy Giles. Plus, former Comedy Central EVP and comedian Judy Gold joins Jentis as an Executive Producer.
Caytha Jentis went out of her way to include many products developed by female entrepreneurs throughout her show as well. Watch for product placements by companies like Peach, Adam & Eve, Unbound Box, Pink trunk, 10th Studio, and more! This spirit of generosity has been a benchmark of this show from the very beginning, including being able to binge-watch free on Amazon!
So are you ready to join me for Season 2 of The Other F word? Watch the entire season now on Amazon FREE and if you need to catch up on Season 1, you can do that too. The comedic, coming-of-age journey for these women will make you laugh, might make you cry, and is sure to remind you of someone you know – maybe even yourself.
