A show about the seamy underbelly of new motherhood, Mama Tried follows the struggles (and occasional triumphs) of Liz Callahan who's finding that she could care less about being a "super-mom"- she just wants to survive. Mama Tried weaves Emily Flake's darkly funny animation to help bring to life all of motherhood's graphic, and sometimes gruesome, realness.
