Overview


Shirley, you can do it!

What do you get when you combine a mother, a wife, and a friend, with a helping of humor, a smidgen of self-help, and a dash of dead-on wisdom? You get Shirley, a woman just like you: looking for answers, trying to stretch the 24-hour day a little bit longer, and constantly seeking to better herself, even when her "self" is just fine as it is. Now, in this hilarious, home-hitting new series, you can follow Shirley through the adventure that is daily life-- and you just might learn a few things about yourself along the way...
