Cindy Chupack grew up in Tulsa, OK. After going to school for journalism at Northwestern University, Chupack broke into the television industry. She has worked in the industry for over two decades. Her work includes hit shows such as, Everybody Loves Raymond, Sex and the City, and Modern Family. After so many years, Chupack has decided to make the jump from television to film. She will be making her directorial debut this Friday, August 2nd with a new movie based on the book, Whatever Makes You Happy by William Sutcliffe. Cindy Chupack’s new movie, Otherhood, will be available to stream this Friday, August 2nd on Netflix.
Otherhood is a story about transitioning. The story is about three mothers (Angela Bassett, Patricia Arquette, Felicity Huffman) who are struggling with their place in the world. The three came together as friends as their sons grew up together. Now that those sons have grown up and left home for New York City, they rarely see their mothers. Nonetheless, their mothers still see each other and have an annual Mother’s Day tradition. The three woman get together to celebrate themselves. This year’s celebration is less fun than others, though, because their kids seem to have forgotten about Mother’s Day or, generally, don’t show any appreciation for it. While day drunk, the three women decide to road trip to New York City to ambush their children.
