Project Status:In development, seeking production company
Project Description:

DILF follows Isaac’s journey back into porn, while preparing for the birth of his first child and caring for his declining mother. He’ll be making OnlyFans videos and performing on shoots while keeping his 9 to 5 job, supporting his wife during her high-risk pregnancy, and managing care for his elderly mother. Somehow, he’s supposed to be able to get an erection under all of this stress.

We’ll also follow his wife Shelby during her difficult pregnancy, as she struggles to keep up with her demanding job. Then her mom finds out about Isaac’s porn career and launches an offensive at Shelby and Isaac’s marriage. And Roxy, this year’s hot starlet, is excited to take Isaac under her wing, even if it makes Isaac feel so old and out-of-touch that he’s quickly plunged into a midlife crisis.

This series will have a grounded and realistic approach to porn creation and performance, and show the complex, real people who make the content that everyone watches but no one admits to.
