Netflix continues to build its roster of original shows with TV veteran Marta Kauffman
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin will star in the new Netflix show Grace and Frankie, a 13-episode comedy series created by Marta Kauffman of Friends fame.
Fonda and Tomlin teamed up 14 years ago on the series 9 to 5; in this new show, their two characters’ lives are upended when both their husbands announce that they are in love with one another and begin planning their wedding, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (The premise sounds somewhat similar to an early Friends plot line in which Ross’ first wife, Carol, leaves him to marry a woman.)
Grace and Frankie will join a growing number of Netflix original shows, including House of Cards. The streaming service is also preparing four Marvel series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage — as well as a miniserires called The Defenders and an untitled family drama starring Kyle Chandler and Sissy Spacek from the creators of Damages.
