Happily Divorced is inspired by Fran Drescher's real life experience and follows Los Angeles florist Fran (Drescher) whose 18-year marriage ends suddenly when her husband (John Michael Higgins) announces he's gay.
And if that weren't enough, he can't afford to move out. They figured out how to be "Happily Divorced," but her being single and his being gay, while living under one roof, is a whole other story.
The series also features Fran's best friend Judi (Tichina Arnold), her parents Dori and Glen (Rita Moreno and Robert Walden) and her flower delivery employee Cesar (Valente Rodriguez).
The series was written by Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson. Drescher, Jacobson, Frank Lombardi and Franco E. Bario are executive producers and Larry W. Jones and Keith Cox serve as executive producers for TV Land.
Happily Divorced was filmed in front of a live studio audience.
