A new block of talk shows, documentaries and comedy programs has been created with moms in mind.
A new prime-time, ad-supported TV block called NickMom has started to air weekly from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. ET on the Nick Jr. channel. The block features a mix of original long- and short-form programming, including talk shows, stand-up and sketch comedy, docu-series and more.
A Unique Destination
The programs on NickMom feature a host of hilarious and recognizable comediennes and moms including Caroline Rhea, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Judy Gold and author Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, among others.
Additionally, it has recently greenlighted 13 episodes of a new docu-comedy TV series, "Take Me To Your Mother" (formerly "My 63 Moms"), starring new mom and comic Andrea Rosen, which will be added to the block's rotation in early 2013.
NickMom is also a fully featured comedy and entertainment site with extensive content including short-form video, photos, editorial pieces and games.
"NickMom is a unique TV and digital destination that gives moms permission to wind down from the day and laugh out loud at the shared experiences of motherhood," said Bronwen O'Keefe, Se-nior Vice President, NickMom. "NickMom has heart, humor and DVR-worthy content that will keep viewers coming back for more."
NickMom's TV lineup features the following four series:
- Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is a show that blends studio elements, interviews, video commentary, monologues and panel discussions with hidden camera, mom on the street and sketch comedy. Each episode explores a different element of parenting, all through the irreverent and funny eyes of author and comedienne Stefanie Wilder-Taylor ("Naptime Is the New Happy Hour," "Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay").
- MFF: Mom Friends Forever is a docu-comedy series that goes inside the worlds of Judi Diamond and Kate Frisina-White-two mom best friends from St. Louis, Mo., who have a lot to say. Between juggling work (at a radio station and grocery store), kids (two each) and relationships (marriage and divorce), they also produce and star in a Web show just for moms. Together, they're living their dream of connecting with other parents while laughing along the way.
- NickMom Night Out is a stand-up comedy series that takes moms out for a night to the local comedy club. The series spotlights the chaos and hilarity that come with being a parent. Featured hosts include Tisha Campbell-Martin (L.A. edition), Judy Gold (N.Y. edition), Caroline Rhea (Orlando, Fla., edition) and Bonnie McFarlane (Chicago edition).
- What Was Carol Brady Thinking? In a twist on a classic series, the show goes inside the mind of one of the most iconic moms of all time through graphic overlays on top of the original "The Brady Bunch" series, allowing viewers to read Carol Brady's thoughts throughout each episode.
