If You Love ‘Ginny & Georgia,’ Don’t Miss TV’s Other Standout Mother-Daughter Duos
Many shows feature mother-daughter relationships, but few portray them with the complexity and nuance of Ginny & Georgia. Netflix’s new breakout dramedy series captures the multi-faceted relationship between Georgia (Brianne Howey), a struggling young single mother with a dark past, and Ginny (Antonia Gentry), her precocious 15-year-old daughter.
The pair’s relationship is rife with tension, mostly stemming from the secrets Georgia keeps from her daughter in order to protect her. Despite their constant bickering, the duo’s relationship is characterized by an unconditional love: Georgia would do anything for her family. Over the course of the first season, Ginny begins to understand the selflessness behind her mother’s dishonesty, and the two become more like best friends than mother and daughter.
If you’ve enjoyed watching Ginny and Georgia’s witty repartee (as well as their moments of warmth, argument, and mutual understanding), you’ll love the eight standout mother-daughter relationships that have graced television over the years below, from Gilmore Girls to The Golden Girls.
