Bravo Orders First Scripted Series; Lisa Edelstein and Janeane Garofalo to Star

by at . Comments

Bravo is ready to present the Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.

Lisa Edelstein and Janeane Garofalo have signed on for the network's first scripted series, which will be based on Vicki Iovine’s best-selling novels and chronicle the journey of Edelstein's Abby.

This self-help author is hiding the fact that she’s separated from her husband.

Garafalo is on board as a divorced friend of Abby's, while Beau Garret will play another pal and Paul Adelstein will stop by a Abby's husband.

Edelstein is best known for her long-time role of Lisa Cuddy on House, but also recurred on both The Good Wife and Castle since leaving that Fox series.

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will kick off with 13 episodes and premiere in early 2015.
