Scheduled to debut in the fall, the series is based on Frankie Shaw's short film of the same name.

Shaw and Rosie O'Donnell are to play mother and daughter, with Shaw also writing, directing and producing the show.

"'SMILF' will take a raw and honest, comedic look at a single, 20-something from Southie whose desires for relationships, sex, and a career collide with the realities of young, single motherhood," a press release noted.

"It's thrilling to find an artist with a strong, singular voice that is new to television," Gary Levine, president of programming for Showtime Networks Inc., said in a statement.

"Frankie literally does it all on 'SMILF': writer, producer, director and star, and the results are funny, emotional, surprising and unapologetic."
