In the Motherhood: Interview With Jennifer Konner

ABC is getting real with its soon-to-debut series, In the Motherhood based on the real life experiences of every day mamas. Executive producer Jennifer Konner, a mum to two, said it was inspired by the web series of the same name and described the online destination as a secret society of moms telling the truth to each other.

The television episodes will draw on the experiences women share because Konner believes "the truth is better than stuff you could make up." One such episode is currently in production. The topic — the repercussions a mom faced after her preschooler discovered there was no Santa Claus and told his entire class.

The sitcom centers around three friends — Jane (Cheryl Hines) a divorced mother of two, her younger sis and seemingly perfect mom, Emily (Jessica St. Clair) and Rosemary (Megan Mullally) a free spirited mama and next door neighbor. The ladies attempt to find balance between work, parenting and relationships. Konner says she is currently under siege with her own daughter, 4, and son, 2, and laughingly described the show as the "No Sex in the City". Check it out on March 26th at 8 p.m.
