About Kathryn Machi:

The premise of the JUNE ROSE pilot breathes fresh life into the concept of a period piece revolving around a ‘60s housewife. Less Betty Draper and more Betty Friedan, the protagonist is one television has never seen before…the characters populating this world are fascinating and original…a complex, nuanced, and altogether captivating series.
