The Letdown: the realities of being a new parent

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:11 pm on 15 May 2018

There's Hollywood's typical version of Motherhood; earnest, nurturing, always positive. And then there's The Letdown.  The Australian produced series screening on Netflix features all the indignities, frustrations and humour that having a baby can bring.

Sarah Scheller is the co-creator and writer on the series and she talks to us about  the steep learning curve of new motherhood and how personal experience shapes the popular show.
