ABOUT THE SERIES
37 PROBLEMS is a story very close to my heart - a struggling 37 year-old screenwriter who's all about her career, finds out she has one egg left. Suddenly she has to get a guy to fertilize the egg, freeze the egg, or do nothing and live a different life than she imagined. (it's a comedy.)
This is a series about fertility, ambivalence around motherhood, career, and what it’s like to be a single woman in a world where biology still has its clock on you when you desperately wish it didn’t. It’s also a series about what it takes to be happy. We watch as AMANDA looks for happiness in work, friends, love relationships, the idea of a baby…. She’s searching for completion and the series challenges her to find it.
Recently, a couple friends froze their eggs and I wondered if I needed to max out my credit card and do that too? When I asked my gynecologist, she said, "You're never as young as you are today." Thanks. And yet, she's right. I always assumed I'd want kids "some day", but some day is now. And I'm not doing anything about it. Except making a web series about it.
I wonder if that means I don't really want kids? I wonder if I could have one on my own even if I did? Is "having it all" really possible when you're on the Obamacare silver plan? I wonder if I'm going to run out of time while I'm wondering all of these things?
I know that if I'm asking these questions, other women are too. I want to put our story on screen. To make something real, that's also really funny. I want to represent all the women who are still figuring shit out. Still searching for happiness.
Thank you for watching!
