Season 1

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce is an American television drama series developed by Marti Noxon and based on the Girlfriends' Guides book series by Vicki Iovine, which revolves around Abby McCarthy, a self-help author who finds solace in new friends and adventures as she faces an impending divorce.

Bravo's first original scripted series follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein, House), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie.

After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Paul Adelstein, Private Practice), America's once-favourite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends, rather than her married ones, for advice.

Her friend Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, Reality Bites) is a legendary no-nonsense entertainment lawyer who is in a constant "War of the Roses" battle with her ex-husband, and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) is a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex.

When she hires Delia (Necar Zadegan, Emily Owens, MD) as her divorce attorney, Abby's brother Max (Patrick Heusinger, Royal Pains), who fought hard for the right to marry, questions his sister on how she can so easily decide to walk away from her own marriage.

Abby is on a journey of self-discovery as she attempts to salvage her career, get back in the dating game and figure out her new identity as a single woman.

As she hits the reset button on her life, she embarks on startling adventures and mishaps along the way, including her first post-marriage hook-up, a blog post gone horribly wrong, and a Vegas trip that leads to some unexpected complications.

And, while in the process of trying and failing to have the "perfect divorce," Abby ultimately questions whether her marriage is worth saving.

The series guest stars J. August Richards (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders), Julianna Guill (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Michael Weaver (The Joe Schmo Show) and Charles Mesure (Desperate Housewives). The pilot also includes a cameo by Carrie Fisher as Abby's book editor, Cat.

Inspired by the Girlfriends' Guide book series by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce is produced by Universal Cable Productions with Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro serving as Executive Producers.
