Mean Mums is a 16 x 1/2 hour family friendly sitcom celebrating school mums in all their crazy, earnest, exhausted glory
When Jess’s only son starts school it’s a big learning curve, for Jess. She’s thrown into a world of know-it-all, judgmental, passive aggressive women whose primary purpose is to promote their child as the most gifted, most brilliant and most bestest child ever. And let’s not even start on the teachers.
