Friends with Better Lives is an American television sitcom created by Dana Klein about six friends at different stages in their lives – married, divorced, newly engaged and single – who are outwardly happy, but finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering... who really has the better life?
Andi (Majandra Delfino) and Bobby (Kevin Connolly) are happily married with two kids but at times long for the days they had less responsibility and more fun; whilst Will (James Van Der Beek) is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife.
Jules (Brooklyn Decker) and Lowell (Rick Donald) are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate (Zoe Lister Jones) has a successful career but may take a swan dive into the L.A. River when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged.
When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering... who really has the better life?
Dana Klein and Aaron Kaplan are executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed the pilot.
The series aired in the USA on CBS from 31 March to 26 May, 2014. There are 13 half-hour episodes in the series, although only eight aired in the USA.
