A 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. Embarking on startling adventures with friends Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, "Reality Bites") and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior"), Abby finds herself 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. Inspired by the Girlfriends' Guide book series by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is executive produced by Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro.
