The SMILF Plot: The new eight-episode, half-hour Showtime comedy series SMILF is a raw, honest look at the life of a 20-something single mom from quadruple threat Frankie Shaw. The series takes a comedic look at the life of Bridgette Bird (Shaw), a young Boston Southie whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of working class single motherhood.
Shameless Season 8 Plot: Emmy Rossum plays Fiona, the eldest of six fierce and independent Gallagher kids who support each other while absentee father, Frank, spends his time scheming his way around the South Side of Chicago. Season eight finds the Gallaghers on an upswing – Frank comes out of a drug-induced haze and decides it’s finally time to be a contributing member of society, while Fiona faces hard decisions when she discovers her success as a landlord may mean someone else’s misfortune. Lip (White) struggles with unexpected sacrifices he must make to stay sober, while Ian (Monaghan) takes up a cause in hopes of getting back with Trevor. Debbie (Kenney) builds her future at welding school while juggling life as a single working mom, as Carl (Cutkosky) gets creative finding tuition money after he loses his scholarship.
Meanwhile, Liam (Isaiah) discovers just how different the Gallaghers are from the families of his rich classmates as Frank schools him on “sticking it to the man.” Kev (Howey) and V (Hampton) have to find a way to deal with Svetlana (Goreshter) after she steals their bar, The Alibi.
