The Double Shift is a reported, narrative show about a new generation of working mothers. Season 2 is out November 11th and features six powerful conversations that tackle the more personal side of being a working mother -- our lives at home. These stories, from a transgender parent living communally to an orthodox Jewish woman without custody of her kids, will challenge expectations and conventional wisdom about how families and relationships should work, and help us reimagine different ways of living way outside the conventional nuclear family box.

The Double Shift is funded in part through the generous support of the Ford Foundation.
