About "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce"

Bravo's first original scripted series, "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce," follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein, "House"), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Paul Adelstein, "Private Practice"), America's once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends, rather than her married ones, for advice. Her friend Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, "Reality Bites") is a legendary no-nonsense entertainment lawyer who is in a constant 'War of the Roses' battle with her ex-husband, and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior") is a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex. When she hires Delia (Necar Zadegan, "Emily Owens, MD") as her divorce attorney, Abby's brother Max (Patrick Heusinger, "Royal Pains"), who fought hard for the right to marry, questions his sister on how she can so easily decide to walk away from her own marriage. Abby is 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. As she hits the reset button on her life, she embarks on startling adventures and mishaps along the way, including her first post-marriage hook-up, a blog post gone horribly wrong and a Vegas trip that leads to some unexpected complications. And, while in the process of trying and failing to have the "perfect divorce," Abby ultimately must figure out whether her marriage is worth saving.

Inspired by the "Girlfriends' Guide" book series by Vicki Iovine, "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" is produced by Universal Cable Productions with Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro serving as Executive Producers.
