JANE FONDA AND LILY TOMLIN BACK TOGETHER AGAIN IN GRACE AND FRANKIE, A NEW ORIGINAL COMEDY SERIES ON NETFLIX
Legendary Comediennes team with Friends creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris for a Very Different Kind of Sitcom
Netflix, will bring to its global members Grace and Frankie, a new original comedy series starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as long-time rivals brought together by a rather unusual change in their marital circumstances.
“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.”
The single-camera comedy focuses on nemeses Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) facing the last chapter of their lives, though not in the way they expected. When their husbands Martin Sheen (‘The West Wing’) and Sam Waterston (‘Law & Order’ ‘The Newsroom) announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married, the women find their lives both turned upside down and to their dismay, permanently intertwined. Eventually, to their surprise, they find they have each other.
Marta Kauffman is best known as the creator of the widely successfully television show Friends. The series was on the air for ten seasons, was nominated for numerous Golden Globe awards and won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series.
I like the look of ‘Grace and Frankie’ the critics appear to be impressed as well.
