HOUSE's Lisa Edelstein to Lead Bravo's Scripted Pilot GIRLFRIEND'S GUIDE TO DIVORCE
BRAVO has tapped HOUSE's Lisa Edelstein to lead its upcoming scripted pilot GIRLFRIEND'S GUIDE TO DIVORCE, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, produced by Universal Cable Productions from writer and Executive Producer Marti Noxon, is based on the book series by Executive Producer Vicki Iovine.
The one hour dramedy follows a best-selling author of a self-help book series who is secretly hiding her separation from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her 40's in Los Angeles. She starts to side with and take advice more from her divorced friends rather than her married ones and it leads her to some unexpected and life-changing experiences.
This fall, Edelstein will appear in on ABC' CASTLE in a multi-episode arc.
Edelstein has lent her voice to several animated programs including King of the Hill, American Dad!, Superman: The Animated Series (as Mercy Graves, Lex Luthor's bodyguard, a role she later reprised in several episodes of Justice League) and the video game adaptation of Blade Runner (1997).Her film credits include small parts and cameos in What Women Want, Keeping the Faith, As Good as It Gets, and Daddy Day Care.
From 2004 to 2011, she played Dr. Lisa Cuddy, the Dean of Medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital and frequent character foil and ex-girlfriend to title character Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) on Fox's TV series House, M.D.
