Canadian sitcom Workin’ Moms tells the story of four ambitious and daring working mothers who have to juggle looking after their children with other family commitments, while working in highly pressured jobs.

The 30-something women each experience their own different challenges after giving birth as they try to balance their jobs, family lives and love lives in modern-day Toronto.

The show primarily follows Kate Foster (Catherine Reitman) through the ups and downs of trying to raise a child in the modern world while continuing to work in a stressful job.

Her friends Anne Carlson (Dani Kind), Jenny Matthews (Jessalyn Wanlim), and Frankie Coyne (Juno Rinaldi) are also adapting to their new lives as working mothers.

The ensemble comedy is largely drawn from the personal experiences of star and co-creator Catherine Reitman.
