Mom and dads
At the center of Mom and Dads – the wild new comedy by Avner Brenheimer - are three parents: a gay couple (Yehuda Levi and Iftach Klein) and a straight single woman (Maya Dagan), who have just had a baby, and who are trying, without a GPS, to make their way through the jungle of the alternative family without any rules or generations of traditions.
Yehuda Levi plays Sammy, partner to Erez (Iftach Klein). Sammy is vying for father of the year – he's stable, strong, works in real estate, likes to celebrate, assertive, and opinionated. He'd rather parent the baby without the girl. Klein plays Erez, a neurotic and anxious homosexual, who wants to be the perfect dad, but makes every mistake in the book, driving everyone crazy.
Mom and Dads brings a fresh, bold new viewpoint of the word "family" and gives it a more flexible, updated and open definition. Through expansive drama and lots of humor, the series examines the boundaries of family in the third millennium, where the traditional concept of family is taking a beating, with plenty of alternatives appearing every day. One of these alternatives is joint parenthood, chosen by the protagonists, and they examine what makes them a family: genetics? Living together? Romantic love? Friendship? Our protagonists ask themselves again and again about what is no longer obvious, and perhaps never was.
