Now-a-days, most families are no longer made up of the clichéd Mom, Dad and 2.5 yet it has been difficult to find a TV show that represents today’s eclectic family dynamics — until now. ABC Family has created a show that features a family that almost everyone can relate to. From executive producer Jennifer Lopez, The Fosters is a brand new one-hour drama that will tug on your heartstrings in the best way possible.
The series follows two mothers Stef Foster (Teri Polo) and Lena Adams (Sherri Saum) as they face the up’s and down’s of raising a mixed family of foster and biological kids. With a son and a set of twins already under one roof, the two woman are thrown for a loop when they encounter Callie (Maia Mitchell), a hardened teen with an abusive past in need of a new home.
Hollywood.com caught up with The Fosters’ leading ladies to find out why this progressive series is one that you cannot miss. Saum explains, “Well obviously it’s kind of ground-breaking in the sense that these two moms are raising these kids, but I think that all types of people are going to relate to [The Fosters].”
Polo echoes these sentiments revealing that the main theme in The Fosters is relatability. “I think we want to say that it’s real that it’s about real life, it’s about real people… It’s not like a soap opera type of drama, it’s that you get drawn in in because it’s about real life,” she says.
The actresses promise that The Fosters is going to be a roller coaster ride of emotions that families of all dynamics will be able to connect with. Saum says, “To see these two moms tackle the task of raising these children and potentially brining new children into their house and how they juggle that is going to be a beautiful thing to watch.”
