The popular Netflix series Maid is based on the true story of author Stephanie Land, who wrote the memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive. Created by Molly Smith Metzler, who is known for Shameless and Orange Is the New Black, was inspired by Land’s memoir about being a young mother who escapes an abusive relationship with only a couple of hundred dollars to her name. She simply couldn’t find work in America’s depressed economy, and because she couldn’t find work, a grant for childcare was also not available to a survivor of domestic abuse. Released in 2019, Land’s memoir is the basis for the critically-acclaimed Netflix miniseries Maid, starring Margaret Qualley as the struggling mother who is running away from her abusive boyfriend.
