We've got the Housewives, haute cuisine and reality dramas on lock, but Bravo is thrilled to announce that we're venturing into the world of scripted dramas with a new series starring Lisa Edelstein, Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett.
Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce—our first original scripted series—follows Abby (Edelstein), a self-help author living in LA who's separated from her husband—and gets caught up in hiding that fact. She goes to her divorced friends for advice and guidance as opposed to the married ones, and the self-discovery and haphazard enlightenment goes from there. It's based on the best-selling book series, Girlfriends' Guide, by Vicki Iovine and the series is co-produced by Marti Noxon, who wrote and produced Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce will premiere in 2015.
The cast of Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce's will also feature Janeane Garofalo, who plays Abby's friend Lyla, an infamous entertainment lawyer, and Beau Garrett (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as Phoebe, the former model who's still carrying a torch for her ex.
"Everybody knows this was all an elaborate scheme to get myself on Watch What Happens Live!" says Marti Noxon, co-producer and writer of the show's pilot. "Seriously, I can't thank everyone enough at Bravo and Universal Cable Productions for making Girlfriends' something special. I am confident that Lisa is going to be TV’s next girl crush; she’s certainly mine.”
We're not gonna disagree on the girl crush front—and we'd love to see Martin on WWHL!
