New Photography for Bravo’s First Scripted Series, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce


As we all know, Bravo is known for its hit reality series, including The Real Housewives franchise, the Top Chef franchise, and Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, just to name a few.  But now, Bravo is venturing into the world of scripted series for the first time with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, starring Lisa Edelstein and Paul Adelstein, and today, released new photography from the show, which premieres Tuesday, December 2 at 10:00 pm ET/PT. Girlfriends’ Guide is the first of the six scripted series Bravo Media announced this past May.

The show follows Abby McCarthy (Edelstein), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. After publicly admitting she has separated from her husband Jake (Adelstein), 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) 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) is a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex. When she hires Delia (Necar Zadegan) as her divorce attorney, Abby’s brother Max (Patrick Heusinger), 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.

The series also stars J. August Richards, C. Thomas Howell, Julianna Guill, Michael Weaver, and Charles Mesure, and the pilot includes a cameo by Carrie Fisher as Abby’s book editor, Cat.
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.
