Presto announced today that Bravo’s critically-acclaimed, inaugural scripted series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will debut on the streaming service with every episode available on Presto exclusively from March 23.
Starring Lisa Edelstein (House) and inspired by the “Girlfriends' Guide” book series by Vicki Iovine, this sparkling dramedy from creator and executive producer Marti Noxon (Glee, Mad Men, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) follows Abby McCarthy – America’s favourite self-help book author and guru – as she navigates her new life as a single woman in her 40s in Los Angeles.
After Abby publicly admits that she has separated from her husband Jake (Paul Adelstein, Scandal), America's once-favourite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. Turning away from her married clique and towards her new set of divorced friends, Abby sets out on a journey of self-discovery as she attempts to salvage her career, get back in the dating game and figure out her new identity as a single woman.
With help from her friends – no-nonsense entertainment lawyer, Lyla (Janeane Garafolo, Reality Bites, Wet Hot American Summer), former model and budding entrepreneur, Phoebe (Beau Garrett, Tron: Legacy), commitment-phobe divorce attorney, Delia (Necar Zadegan, 24) and her blunt best friend from university, Jo (Alanna Ubach, Meet the Fockers) – Abby comically stumbles through first post-marriage hook-ups, a blog post gone horribly wrong and a Vegas trip that leads to some unexpected complications.
Guest stars in the series include Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), Bernadette Peters, Carrie Fisher, Retta, Megan Hilty, Mark Valley, Jean Smart, Will Kemp, Lesley Ann Warren, Barry Bostwick and Maury Sterling.
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is produced by Universal Cable Productions with Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, Carol Barbee, Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro serving as executive producers.
