It’s a Nine to Five reunion! The 1980 film’s co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are working together again in Netflix’s new original sitcom, Grace and Frankie.
The half-hour, single-camera comedy comes from Friends creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, who writes and produces TBS’ Sullivan & Son. The 13-episode season will follow nemeses Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) who unexpectedly find common ground when their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married.
“Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are among the funniest and most formidable actresses ever, and it’s an incredible privilege to give them the opportunity to run riot on Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer, in a statement. “The show created for them by Marta and Howard is warm, very funny and anything but wholesome. We can’t wait.”
The Skydance Productions series will premiere next year.
