About "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce": Inspired by the "Girlfriends' Guide" books by Vicki Iovine, the series follows Abby, a self-help book author and guru of all things family who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has been a lie. After inadvertently publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Paul Adelstein, "Private Practice"), America's once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. Abby turns to her new divorced friends including Lyla, a legendary no-nonsense entertainment lawyer who is in a constant 'War of the Roses' battle with her ex-husband and Phoebe, a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex. Meanwhile, a rival attorney at Lyla's firm, Delia (Necar Zadegan, "Emily Owens, MD"), is hired as Abby's divorce attorney. Laverne Cox ("Orange is the New Black") will also guest star in an upcoming episode as Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer-Prize winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala. Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro serve as Executive Producers.
