It is no secret that I turned the big 4-0 this past July. Was I happy about it? Not really, but I have come to terms with it. I think one of the biggest changes is this new chapter of life where non of my kids are little anymore. In fact in 1 more year all of my kids will be teenagers or adults. (HOLY COW). Many of my friends are also going through this shift which makes the new series on Netflix called “The Other F Word” the perfect series for women in their 40’s.
“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.
lf. Seriously doesn’t this seem like the same exact things that you and all your friends are dealing with?? I mean I have been a mother since I was 16. I am super proud of my kids and my marriage. But now it is time to rediscover myself and I have to admit it is harder then I thought it would be.
“The Other F Word” series taps into an underserved and underappreciated 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.
