About this show
Starring Alicia Silverstone, Mena Suvari, and Jennifer Bartels, this new half-hour series is inspired by the real-life upbringing of co-executive producer Kyle Richards (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”). “American Woman” follows Bonnie (Silverstone) an unconventional mother struggling to raise her two daughters after leaving her husband amid the rise of second-wave feminism in the 70s. With the help of her two best friends, Kathleen (Suvari) and Diana (Bartels), these three women each discover their own brand of independence in a glamorous and ever-changing world reluctant to give it.
American Woman premieres Thursday, June 7 at 10:00pm ET/PT on Paramount Network.
