Best Friends Forever is an American television sitcom created by and starring Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair about two best friends living on opposite sides of the country who reunite and move in together after one of them gets a divorce.
The series aired in the USA on NBC from 4 April to 1 June, 2012. There are six half-hour episodes in one season.

Best Friends Forever, from executive producer Scot Armstrong (Old School, Hangover 2), is a comedy about old friends, new beginnings and awkward situations.
Jessica St. Clair (Bridesmaids) and Lennon Parham (Accidentally on Purpose) star as Jessica and Lennon, best friends who live on opposite sides of the country with the men in their lives.
When Jessica is overnighted divorce papers, Lennon convinces her to return home to Brooklyn and back into the apartment they used to share.
It doesn't take long for the girls to fall into old habits: movie marathons and late night girl talk sessions - none of which is good news for Lennon's live-in boyfriend, Joe (Luka Jones). Joe tries to be understanding but begins to feel like a stranger in his own home.
Meanwhile, Jessica is trying to get used to her new single life. Will she have to start buying matching sets of underwear again?
Also, reconnecting with old friends like Rav (Stephen Schneider), who may or may not have feelings for her, is more complicated than she thought.
All of Jessica's new efforts are met with the critique of the friends' precocious nine-year-old neighbour, Queenetta (Daija Owens), who is not shy about doling out advice on their life choices.
Best Friends Forever is produced by Universal Television and American Work, Inc. Along with Armstrong, St. Clair, Parham, Alexa Junge (Friends, United States of Tara), Fred Savage (Party Down) and Ravi Nandan are executive producers.
Donick Cary is consulting producer, while Keith Raskin serves as producer on the series.
