NYWIFT member Liz Samuel is the writer, producer and lead actress in her new series Momtress. This is the story of Libby Sandler, a busy, frazzled, suburban Mom who is trying to be a great mom AND get the part. She wants to be there for her kids at every question asked, lunch packed and bedtime routine. But she also wants to be a good actress and get the roles she scrambles for. A recent loss leaves her searching for a cheerleader in life to guide her moves as she juggles her passions and navigates moving forward.
The campaign ends August 2, 2017.
