Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin Head Up Netflix's New Dramedy, 'Grace and Frankie'

Netflix's newest series examines what happens when two women in their 70s find out that their husbands are in love with each other.
 

Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) have a problem. Their husbands (played by Michael Sheen and Sam Waterston) are in love—with each other. When the two men announce their intentions to leave their wives and be with each other, Grace and Frankie’s world gets taken for a spin, and no small one, at that.
  
Netflix picked up a full 13-episode series order for Grace and Frankie, which was created by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman, in early 2014.

Grace and Frankie will debut on 8 May on Netflix.
