Amazon recently added “The Other F Word,” a webseries filmed by FDU students during spring break. Students crewed this independent production under the tutelage of David Landau, professor of film. This allows them to gain knowledge and experience while earning both college and professional screen credits. The webseries has received excellent reviews since being picked up by Amazon.


Filmed during the spring of 2016, “The Other F Word” is a comedic coming-of-age series about four women friends who deal with the highs and lows of mid-life as they reinvent themselves now that their kids are grown. An unexpected death has a huge impact on lifelong friends, however, it affects surburan, empty-nester, Amy, the most, whose husband announces that he’s quit his job to join the Peace Corps. Amy’s husband challenges her to find her own reason for being while he’s away. Amy decides to move to the city with her single sister and, along with their two best friends, begin life after kids.

Watch "The Other F Word" on Amazon.
