She'll lean on her circle of friends for advice and support through the inevitable divorce."

Rodriguez will play 'Juliet', Sally's best friend, described as "a sexy and flamboyant party girl force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country who is secretly delighted when her best friend breaks up with her 'boring' husband".

Also in the cast is Upright Citizens Brigade member Drew Tarver as "Todd, Sally's best friend and roommate from college who is now married to her brother".
