THE DIVA MOM SHOW is a satirical/comedy TV/Web that follows the triumphs and travails of "E'lan Baxter Wright-Williams" (Helena-Joyce Wright,, loosely based on her life). Once a darling of the Broadway musical theatre scene, she left the stage for a fabulous life with her beloved, Edward, a Diplomat. But, that brought with it--Motherhood and the reviews for this role are a “little” more mixed (The Mom). Now widowed, she has set her sights for a return to the "Great White Way." She is joined along the way by her lifelong friends and notable friends from the entertainment industry (The Diva). In a word, the show is....HYSTERICAL! Viewing life and motherhood through her lens is like nothing the world has ever seen!!!! Future episodes to include:

THE DIVA MOM SHOW is a Television/Web series in development. It has been very well received within the industry and with a wide cross-section of viewers from urban youth to suburban housewives and pretty much everything in between. The show has already garnered two cable network offers which we decided not to pursue because we KNOW this show is a hit and our goal is to maintain as much creative control of the characters and content and possible and YOU can INSURE that this happens!
