Fertility Comedy Free

(Above: Lisa Ebersole in ’37 Problems,’ episode 1)

37 Problems, a fertility comedy series that debuted last October on subscription streamers Amazon Prime and Seed&Spark, has just released its 10th episode for free on Vimeo.

Series creator Lisa Ebersole plays Amanda, a struggling 37 year-old screenwriter who “finds out she has one egg left. Suddenly she has to get a guy to fertilize the egg, freeze the egg, or do nothing and live a different life than she imagined.”

In the new episode, aptly titled “Mother’s Day?,” Amanda decides on option number one. She chooses her first love from 22 years earlier — guest star Eric Balfour (Haven, Six Feet Under, 24) — to father her baby.

Will the plan work? To find out, you can watch “Mother’s Day?” right here:

If you’re new to the series, you can start by binge-watching all nine previous short-form episodes in under an hour on either Amazon Prime or Seed&Spark.

You probably know about Amazon Prime, but what’s Seed&Spark? The answer: A subscription service specializing in shows and movies from independent crowd-sourced filmmakers. You can check out a sampling of current selections, accompanied by free trailers, at seedandspark.com.

Still trying to decide where to watch 37 Problems’ first season?

Seed&Spark offers a one-month free trial while Amazon Prime’s is 30 days. Seed&Spark then costs $6.99 a month, Amazon Prime $12.99 a month.

Seed&Spark is available online, on Apple TV and on Roku. Amazon Prime is available online or via the Amazon Prime Video app for a full range of connected TVs and other devices.
