Odd Mom Out is an American comedy television series created by and starring Jill Kargman as a fictionalised version of herself, Jill Weber, who is forced to navigate the wealthy mommy clique that resides in New York's prestigious Upper East Side neighbourhood.
Forget about keeping up with the Joneses - in Jill's world, life is about keeping up with the Rockefellers. This half-hour comedy, based not-so-loosely on Jill's own life, captures the fantastically outrageous domain of the uber-wealthy momzillas inhabiting New York's Upper East Side.
Playing a version of herself, Jill is living in an ecosystem that has become so elite, so hip, and so trendy, that she now finds herself the "odd mom out."
A New Yorker through and through, Jill embraces her quirky and somewhat unconventional life with her loving husband, Andy Weber (Andy Buckley, The Office), three great kids, and a best friend who shares the same love for donuts and snarky retorts, Vanessa Wrigley (KK Glick, College Humor).
However, the posh and decadent world of Andy's classically blue-blooded family slowly takes over as Jill valiantly tries to resist all the delicious temptations and perks their wealth can afford.
From accepting her in-laws' aristocratic, and perhaps cloudy, legacy to interviewing for a family burial plot at the most prestigious cemetery, Jill constantly battles staying true to herself while weighing the benefits of fitting in.
Jill's frenemies and in-laws only fuel the pressure for her to conform, including the status-obsessed Weber family matriarch, Candace (guest star Joanna Cassidy, Six Feet Under), brother-in-law Lex (Sean Kleier, Madam Secretary) and his wife, Brooke (Abby Elliott, Saturday Night Live), who reigns over a group of quintessential Upper East Side mombots with an iron credit card.
Odd Mom Out is produced by Left/Right with Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver serving as Executive Producers along with Jill Kargman, Piro Vision's Tim Piper and Daniel Rosenberg and Jax Media's Tony Hernandez.
Showrunners are Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky (Sex and the City, Smash) who also serve as Executive Producers.
