'SMILF' (Nov. 5)

Get ready to meet Frankie Shaw  – the writer, producer, director and star of this dramedy (based on her own 2015 short, which won an award at Sundance) about a young South Boston lady who likes nothing more than shooting hoops and sucking face with cute dudes.

Even if the story was not semi-autobiographical, the series has a intimate, lived-in feel that suggests this show has not gone through the meat grinder of a joke-writing committee – and a raw, unfiltered sense of humor that suggests Shaw could be a major new voice in TV comedy.
