Each episode focuses on two mother-daughter pairs who are at their wits’ end in their dealings with the mom's obsessions ranging from plastic surgery to shopping or working out. In many cases, their roles have been reversed as the daughters have to take care of the moms. Through interviews, therapy, and interventions, the daughters will try to help their mothers overcome their obsessions and restore the balance in their relationship.

Its first episode airing Thursday, March 29 at 10 p.m. features one mother obsessed with getting cosmetic procedures while another is addicted to working out (pictured above).

Firecracker Films (My Big Gypsy Wedding, Susan Boyle: An Unlikely Superstar) and Zodiak (Being Human, Wife Swap) produce the series.
