Netflix has bought the rights to Grace and Frankie, a new 13-part sitcom starring legendary actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin which will premiere next year.
The pair play long-time rivals brought together by a rather unusual change in their marital circumstances – their husbands suddenly announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married.
Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) find their lives both turned upside down and – to their dismay – permanently intertwined. Eventually, to their surprise, they find they have each other.
“Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are among the funniest and most formidable actresses ever and it’s an incredible privilege to give them the opportunity to run riot on Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer.
“The show created for them by Marta and Howard is warm, very funny and anything but wholesome. We can’t wait.”
