NEW YORK – August 6, 2013 – Bravo Media has announced they have greenlit a new scripted pilot “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Based on the “Girlfriends’ Guide…” book series by Vicki Iovine, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” will be produced by Universal Cable Productions with Marti Noxon, who wrote the pilot, Dawn Olmstead, Vicki Iovine and Meryl Poster serving as executive producers.The scripted project follows the famous author of a best-selling self-help book series who is hiding the fact that she’s separated from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her
early 40s in Los Angeles. She finds herself seeking advice from her divorced friends, instead of her married ones which leads to some unexpected and life-changing experiences.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Marti Noxon on this project,” said Andrew Wang, Vice President of Scripted Development and
Production, Bravo. “Marti’s incredible talent and unique perspective shine through in this compelling exploration of a modern woman’s journey through divorce and the next chapter of her life.”
“The funny, frank and fabulous tone of Vicki’s books provide a perfect jumping off place for the show,” said Marti Noxon. “I love Bravo and look forward to creating a great ‘second marriage’ with them!”
“Anything I’ve ever really needed to know I learned from my girlfriends and passed it on in my Girlfriends’ Guides books and blogs,”
said Vicki Iovine. “We all know divorce is difficult to endure, but since most of us are living with it or in fear of it, let’s tell the truth about the pain and the possibilities — and all the ‘new sex’ along the way.”
This sounds decent. Has anyone read the books?
