Bravo's first original scripted series, "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce," follows Abby, a self-help book author and guru of all things family who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has 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 including Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, "Reality Bites") and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior") for advice. Meanwhile, a rival attorney at Lyla's firm, Delia is hired as Abby's divorce attorney. Laverne Cox ("Orange is the New Black") and Tony Award winning actress Bernadette Peters will guest star in season one. The series is inspired by the "Girlfriends' Guide" books by Vicki Iovine. Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro serve as Executive Producers.
