Donna Mills, Dyan Cannon and Crystal Hunt star in comedy series touted as a cross between “Golden Girls” and “Friends”
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Four generations of women are thrown together by circumstance to live under one roof and survive in Los Angeles in the hilarious new comedy series “Mood Swings,” premiering Oct. 24 on streaming service Pure Flix (www.PureFlix.com). New episodes will be released every Thursday for eight weeks.
The series stars and was created by Crystal Hunt (“One Life To Live,” “The Guiding Light”) and costars Robin Riker (“The Bold and the Beautiful,” “General Hospital”), Sophia Gasca (“Ballers”), Christina DeRosa (“Bad Moms”), Scott Bailey (“The Bay,” “Ray Donovan”) and Jason Earles (“Hannah Montana”). The series also costars television and screen leading ladies Donna Mills and Dyan Cannon as Hunt’s mother and aunt, respectively.
“Mood Swings” was written by well-known sitcom writer Bob Colleary (“Golden Girls,” “The Facts of Life,” “Touched By An Angel”), Danielle Bisutti and Hunt, and directed by Sean Lambert (“The Larry Sanders Show,” “Kickin’ It,” “Grounded for Life”). Hunt is the executive producer.

“We felt there was a need for a great female ensemble comedy,” said Hunt. “Right now, you can only watch reruns of shows like ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Designing Women’ to enjoy a female-driven show. Our thinking was to embrace the legacy of these programs while adding a modern twist.”
Newly divorced from her mega-successful, controlling and philandering husband Jonathan (Bailey), Farrah (Hunt) is awarded the couple’s Malibu mansion along with an enormous mortgage and minimal financial support to take care of herself and 8-year-old son Ryder. Recognizing she needs an income, yet having no work experience whatsoever, Farrah decides to rent out rooms in her house in order to pay the bills. After placing an ad on Craigslist for female roommates, enter Coco (Riker), a disgruntled working woman; Dani (DeRosa), a fiery Canadian-Italian culinary wizard and hopeful Hollywood actress; and Emilia (Gasca), an enigmatic Dominican entrepreneur trying to get U.S. citizenship.
Farrah’s live-in not-so-handy handyman Angel (Earles) adds even more comedic moments to the show as he both struggles and enjoys being the only adult male in the household. While all the women come from different backgrounds and generations, they are brought together by unforeseen circumstances and what ensues is a wild and hysterical ride full of laughs.
