Ever hankered to meet a clan that outmoded even Modern Family? Ever miss that ol’ skool sitcom feel combined with more evolved and progressive sensibilities? Evered wondered what Ozzie and Harriet might look like if it were Harriet and Harriet? Well look no further than the new indie sitcom created by Steven Wishnoff himself in the form of Life Interrupted.  Starring Mason Reese and featuring Alison Arngrim as Reese’s ex-wife, now paired with Erin Murphy as a married lesbian couple, everybody’s soon-to-be-favorite post-modern family is well on its way to TV screens and more copious computer platforms all across America! Throw in Dawn Wells as Arngrim’s sexy, sassy mother and Michael Learned as Murphy’s elegantly reserved (yet comedically clamorous) matriarch and you’ve got yourself a sitcom to rival that of Diffren’t Strokes and Modern Family all in one… “Diffren’t Family?”  “Modern Strokes”?

Yes! This little televised powerhouse, or as creator Wishnoff has dubbed it, “our little show that could” has been named an Official Selection in 11 festivals, and garnered nearly 20 awards thus far in said wake, and now the team hopes for EMMY CONSIDERATION. To that end they’ve submitted to the Television Academy’s “For Your Consideration Members Only Website”: Life Interrupted as Outstanding Short form Comedy or Drama, Alison Arngrim as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama, Dawn Wells as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama, and Michael Learned as Outstanding Guest Actress.   Beginning Monday June 12th Academy Members can help propel Life Interrupted to further prominence via preliminary ballot voting on the final Emmy Ballot Opens!

And for anyone who is not an Academy Member, we can watch and enjoy of the very beginning of said “Life Interrupted” story. Please visit and subscribe to its YouTube Channel and visit us on Facebook:
