Motherland is a British television sitcom set in London, which was first broadcast on BBC Two in September 2016 and has since been commissioned for three full seasons. All episodes are available to watch on BBC iPlayer and in the United States the series is broadcast on Sundance TV. Stars include Anna Maxwell Martin, Diane Morgan, Paul Ready, Lucy Punch, Phillipa Dunne, Tanya Moodie, Joanna Lumley and Natalie Cassidy.

The series follows the lives of several women experiencing the trials and traumas of middle-class motherhood. When her mother decides to stop taking care of her children, middle-class Julia Johnson is forced to begin to pay attention to her children’s schooling and the concept of middle-class motherhood. Julia later becomes friends with other parents, working-class Liz and stay-at-home dad Kevin and finds herself in a world of ‘Alpha Mums’, including the superficially polite but acerbic leader, Amanda.

Motherhood has enjoyed success with critics and audiences alike. The series has been nominated for one BAFTA Award and has picked up further wins and nominations internationally.
