“The Other F Word,” a dramatic comedy series by award-winning filmmaker Caytha Jentis, is available free on Amazon. The riveting new series whose cast includes names such as: Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy), Michael Boatman (The Good Wife), Reiko Aylesworth (24), Judy Gold (Jim Gaffigan Show) and Ben Bailey (Cash Cab), addresses issues like ageism, sexism, re-entering the workforce, sexuality for women 40+, dating after divorce/widowhood and more. At its heart, the series is about friendship and finding oneself after the kids are grown – an adult coming of age in mid-life.
“The Other F Word” series taps into an underserved and under-appreciated demographic: women 40+.
Amazon reviewers are raving about the new series because they recognize themselves in the characters and relate to the storylines. The “F word” in the title stands for 40 and 50—ages when women are often overlooked and ignored, but it also stands for “fun” because the #FunNeverGetsOld. “The Other F Word” aims to show that life doesn’t end after 30. It only gets richer with age.
I love this show. As it happens I am older than 40 and although I do still have two children at home – 11 and 15, the others are all grown and have lives of their own. I never imagined how much my life would change at this point in my journey but it sure has and I can totally relate with so much of what has been portrayed in this series. I look forward to future episodes and how these characters grow and evolve.
