American Woman premieres

on

Bonnie’s seemingly perfect life is changed forever when she discovers her husband, real estate star Steve, is having an affair and under investigation for shady practices. Now she finds herself without a man and without any marketable skills.

This unconventional mother with a huge home in the Hollywood Hills and all the creature comforts life had to offer a housewife in 1975 Los Angeles, is struggling to raise her two daughters amid the rise of second-wave feminism in the 1970s.

She is not, however, alone because she has faithful best friends — sunny and idly rich Texan Kathleen and sarcastic Diana, a frustrated bank worker who knows what’s in store for Bonnie in the real world.

These three women each discover their own brand of independence in a glamorous and ever-changing world reluctant to give it.

Thursdays on Paramount Network.
