“SMILF”
Season Premiere Sunday, January 20 At 10:30 PM ET/PT on Showtime

         Filmed on location in Boston, this season finds Bridgette (Frankie Shaw) trying to move forward and focus on her future, while attempting to exorcise old ghosts and atone for past misdeeds. She’s still toiling away in her day job working for narcissistic boss Ally (guest star Connie Britton). Meanwhile, Bridgette’s mother Tutu (Rosie O’Donnell) rallies from a heartbreaking setback punctuated by the presence of her co-dependent younger sister Jackie (guest star Sherie Rene Scott).

          Ex-boyfriend Rafi (Miguel Gomez) and his girlfriend Nelson Rose (Samara Weaving) grow closer, while Eliza (Raven Goodwin, now a series regular) deals with her own family drama. Viewers will also go back in time to witness the highly unconventional birth of Bridgette’s beloved son, Larry (Alexandra and Anna Reimer).
Season two guest stars include Oscar® and Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner Melanie Griffith (Working Girl) as Nelson Rose’s free-spirited mother Enid and Claudia O’Doherty (Love) as Nelson’s disillusioned sister, Winnie; and Ally Sheedy (Psych) as Bridgette’s midwife, Fiona.

         Additional guest stars include Stormy Daniels, Ari Graynor (I’m Dying Up Here) and Dan Aid. Mark Webber, Bodega Bamz, Blake Clark, Kimberley Crossman and Mia Kaplan return as guest stars. Shaw will also direct several episodes. Other directors this season include Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Cate Shortland (Marvel’s Black Widow).
