Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin Headline Netflix Gay-Themed Comedy
Netflix's latest original series will unite two veteran actresses and a theme you might expect from an HBO production.
Grace and Frankie features Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two rivals forced to get to know each other better when their husbands fall in love with each other.
The streaming service has given a 13-episode order to the half-hour comedy, created by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffmanand Howard J. Morris (Sullivan & Son) and executive produced by Paula Weinstein through Skydance Prods.
Netflix, which said the show was created specifically with the stars in mind, already boasts an original series lineup which includes Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Hemlock Grove and Lilyhammer.
