It was written and directed by Bill Caco, who also stars and soars in the role of Connor. F#cking 40 marks Caco's episodic series directing debut.
This digital series follows four childhood buddies (Connor, Glenn, Noah, and Jugs) as they face life's greatest challenge: turning 40 years old. Jeff Pride, Justin J. Johnson, and Josh Robert Thompson deliver memorable acting performances in this series alongside Bill Caco. Carrie Schroeder is vivacious in her portrayal of Shelly.
These four friends are still young at heart and they explore being lost and confused as they approach this landmark birthday in Los Angeles, California, which can easily be perceived as the new 30. It tackles many issues that are relevant in our time such as unhappy marriages, exhaustion from parenting, having a mediocre career, as well as how difficult it is to understand millennials.
Brittany Falardeau is the voice of reason in this series as Ella, the bar owner, who is always there for these gentlemen in a time of need.
F#cking 40 was nominated for five 2020 Indie Series Awards, which included nods for "Best Comedy Series," "Best Writing — Comedy," "Best Ensemble — Comedy, "Best Supporting Actress — Comedy" for Carrie Schroeder, and for "Best Lead Actor — Comedy" for Bill Caco.
