Sony Channel rolls out ROFLing Sundays with a trio of comedies this January: Bad Judge, Odd Mom Out, and Younger, all premiering this January 17. All showcasing a fun and fierce female lead, these shows take entertainment to new and better heights.
ODD MOM OUT STARS NOVELIST-FASHIONISTA IN HER OWN TV SERIES
Odd Mom Out stars its creator, Jill Kargman as a fictional character based on herself, Jill Webber. Set in the wealthy, cosmopolitan jungle of New York’s Upper East Side, Jill sets out to navigate the good, the bad, and the ugly of the elite mommy clique. Finding herself sticking out like a sore thumb in a bevy of shiny, seemingly perfect and ultra trendy mommies, Jill sees the world around her in a different lens.
The comedy satire is based on her novel published in 2007, Momzillas. It also stars Andy Buckley (The Office), Joanna Cassidy (Six Feet Under), Sean Kleier (Madam Secretary), and Abby Elliot (Saturday Night Live).
Best enjoyed in “small doses,” (as perhaps because it offers a very nauseatingly honest take on the upper crusts’ ridiculous excesses), Odd Mom Outis a welcome treat to add in television’s line up of entertaining shows.
Sony Channel unveils this witty, tongue-in-cheek series in Asia on January 17, Sunday at 7:00pm.
IT’S LAW WITHOUT MUCH ORDER WITH SPUNKY LEGAL COMEDY BAD JUDGE
It’s law with attitude in Bad Judge, starring Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice).
Rebecca Wright is one of the most respected and prominent criminal court judges in Los Angeles. She also happens to speak her mind and acts as she wants on and off the court. From creative cases rulings to hot date nights with men, she is the town’s most intriguing woman. Beautiful and strong, she cuts a very intimidating figure, but never short of admirers.
Watch this lady judge deftly manage her career and everything else through wit, humor and innuendoes day in and day out.
Co-created by Chad Kultgen and Anne Heche, this legal comedy is spunky and one of a kind. Catch the entire season at Sony Channel. First episode premiers on January 17, Sunday at 7:30pm
YOUNGER KICKS OFF IN ASIA
Charismatic and poignant, Younger is a comedy that follows the struggle of a 40-year old woman who suddenly finds herself a single mother who needs to re-establish her career. Finding it tough to rise from the ranks in her age, she capitalizes on her youthful looks (and an almost magical make over) by passing herself off as a 20-something. What follows next is a funny and heart-warming tale of friendship and pursuit of success.
Based on the novel of the same title written by Pamela Redmond Satran, Younger stars Tony Award winner Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”) Hilary Duff (“Lizzie McGuire”), Debi Mazar(“Entourage”) and Miriam Shor(“GCB”). Its maiden season captures the journey of woman to reinvent herself and rediscover love.
Written, executive produced and directed by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”), the series kicks off its second season with back to back episode on January 17, Sunday at 8:00pm. First and exclusive on Sony Channel.
Sony Channel is seen on SKYCable Channel 35, Cignal Digital TV Channel 60, Destiny Cable Channel 62, Cable Link Channel 39.
