Explores Everything You Though You Knew About Women 40+: Love, Death, Divorce, and Life Through Four Women's POV

“I now live a #nofear lifestyle and I want to share this wisdom with others,” says writer and producer Caytha Jenstis

The Other F Word, a new web series that aims to change perceptions of women 40+ will go live on September 1 on Amazon. In this dramatic comedy, award-winning filmmaker Caytha Jenstis (Bad Parents, And Then Came Love), addresses issues like ageism, sexism, re-entering the workforce, sexuality for women 40+, dating after divorce/widowhood and more. At its heart, the series is about finding oneself after the kids are grown – an adult coming of age in mid-life.

The series brings together a rich ensemble cast that includes actors Steve Guttenberg, Michael Boatman, two-time Emmy Award winner, Judy Gold and comedian Ben Bailey. Cast in the roles of the four girlfriends are Stephanie Little (Stuck, Killing the Apologetic Girl, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit); Reiko Aylesworth (24, Revolution, Hawaii Five-O); Holly Cate (As The World Turns, The Guiding Light); and LeeAnne Hutchison (Two Guys, Gertrude Stein’s Brewsie and Willie).

Jentis used her own experience and those of close friends as the catalyst for the series that follows the exploits of four girl friends, each turning the page on the next half of their lives and handling matters in humorous and sometimes touching ways.

Jentis admits that many women are paralyzed by fear and anxiety at the thought of aging, of becoming empty nesters. “I now live a #nofear lifestyle and I want to share this wisdom with others,” she says, and she believes that the concept of #nofear is personal, accessible and attainable by embracing the idea of having more happy days than sad ones.

The series seems perfectly timed as women 40+ continue to be a powerful, healthy and wealthy constituent group. Women today are seeing history in the making as middle-aged women take center stage and join with their younger counterpart, historically adding a deep crack in the glass ceiling and demonstrating that numbers do not define them, nor can any barriers contain their joie de vivre. Life doesn’t end after 30, it gets richer with age.

The Other F Word was created and directed by Caytha Jentis and produced by Emmy-Award winner, Kathleen McDonough who was also the series’ production designer. David Landau, a five-time Telly Award winner served as director of photography, and Leslie Cimino, also an Emmy award-winner was associate producer on this project.
