If Netflix shows didn’t have a buzz about them already, then get ready for Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in Grace and Frankie, a new comedy about two senior women whose husbands fall for one another and leave them. Sounds like ‘must-see’ TV.
All thirteen episodes of the series will begin on Friday, May 8.
The series also stars Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, along with Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, Baron Vaughn and June Diane Raphael.
In Grace and Frankie, Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”) star as two women whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, they form an unlikely bond to face an uncertain future together and discover a new definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.
From executive producers Marta Kauffman (“Friends”) and Howard J. Morris (“Home Improvement”), the hilarious and heartbreaking comedy takes on aging with gusto – from joint pain to joint rolling and blind dates to night blindness – and offers a poignant look at how life’s turning points show us who we really are.
5pm Friday, May 8 on Netflix.
