Presto will premiere US series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce from March 23.
Starring Lisa Edelstein (House) and inspired by the “Girlfriends’ Guide” book series by Vicki Iovine, the dramedy from Marti Noxon (Glee, Mad Men, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) follows America’s favourite self-help book author and guru Abby McCarthy as a single woman in her 40s in Los Angeles.
The series guest stars Laverne Cox, Bernadette Peters, Carrie Fisher, Retta, Megan Hilty, Mark Valley, Jean Smart, Will Kemp, Lesley Ann Warren, Barry Bostwick and Maury Sterling.
It premiered in the US on Bravo TV in December 2014, with a second season last December.
After Abby publicly admits that she has separated from her husband Jake (Paul Adelstein, Scandal), America’s once-favorite 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.
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.
All episodes of S1 and S2 will be available from March 23.
