Inspired by Stephanie Land's memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive, Maid follows the story of Alex (Qualley), a single mother who turns to housecleaning to — barely — make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet). MacDowell plays Alex's mother Paula, a self-proclaimed artist with an endless rotation of boyfriends. But while her infectious personality makes her the life of every party, she takes great pains to hide her battle with psychological demons. Seen through the emotional yet humorous lens of a desperate but determined woman, this series is a raw and inspiring exploration of a mother's resilience.

From showrunner Molly Smith Metzler, Maid also stars Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose, Tracy Vilar, Billy Burke, Raymond Ablack, BJ Harrison, Xavier de Guzman, Aimee Carrero, and Toby Levins. The series is executive produced by Metzler, Margot Robbie, John Wells, Tom Ackerley, Erin Jontow, Brett Hedblom, and author Land.
