Short Summary: "You're Doing Great!" is a dramatization of the events surrounding the death of Sharon Spell's parents. It evolved from a one-person live show to a fully realized pilot. Sharon and her producing team took the next step by filming pages from the pilot to turn into a sizzle reel for submitting to festivals and pitching to networks and media outlets.
What does "You're Doing Great!" mean? While Sharon and her siblings faced their parents end of life care, they began to use this catch phrase with one another, "You're doing great!" In reality, they were not doing so great. Saying this was an ironic way to call out their misery, which made them laugh. It was that humor they shared that gave them all comfort during the most challenging of emotional times.

Based on a true story, Sharon Steele moves from NYC back home to Mississippi. She copes with personal loss as well as her own inner demons as current events unfold with the state flag, confederate monuments coming down and more. This multi-season series is flush with storylines that examine the stages of grief, dreams deferred, letting go of the past, moving forward.

It shows that no matter what, "You're Doing Great!"
