Ruth & Erica, a new series which launched September 24, on WIGS (www.youtube.com/wigs), the #1 channel for scripted drama on YouTube, tackles the many issues faced by Baby Boomers and their adult children in a 13-episode drama written and directed by Amy Lippman (Party of Five). The series focuses on the struggles of Erica, played by Maura Tierney (ER, The Good Wife), a woman facing her mother's reluctance to admit that, with age, comes the need to accept that you can't do everything you used to.

Hall (Dexter), Rosalind Chao (Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23), Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), and Steven Weber (Wings).
