Brace yourself for the show that’s more shameless than ‘Shameless’

Usually, scraping the bottom of the barrel is a bad thing. That’s where you find dirty, unsavoury emotions and thoughts – or even actual dirt that gets trapped under your fingernails. 

If you’ve watched dark comedy Shameless (seasons 1-6 are on Showmax), you know what we’re talking about thanks to the wheeler-dealer con-artist family the Gallaghers, “who are pretty much the dregs of society”, said lead star William H Macy (who plays patriarch Frank) in a Build interview.

Showmax has clawed its way through the grime at the bottom of the barrel to bring you arguably the most awfully, brilliantly bad series we’ve ever seen: SMILF, which debuted this year. Showmax is the only place in Africa where you can watch it!

Lead star Frankie Shaw plays Bridgette Bird, a struggling single mom from Southie, the rough side of Boston – the same neighbourhood that Liev Schreiber’s troubled Hollywood enforcer character calls home in Ray Donovan (seasons 1-4 on Showmax). But, unlike Ray’s tale, Bridgette’s is mostly true.

“She’s loosely based on me,” says Shaw in candid interviews with production network Showtime. “I was a single young mom trying to make it in LA as an actress and I was just over everything. We filmed a scene from the pilot that I wrote. I filmed it because I knew that the grittiness in my head didn’t match what was on the page, so I needed to be in the moment and be the one being filmed to bring it to life.”
