"Starter Wife" coming back as a series


"The Starter Wife" miniseries was such a hit for NBC Universal’s USA Network that it is coming back as a series. Debra Messing will return as the star and also serve as executive producer. The writing team of Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott return as executive producers. Gigi Levangie Grazer also returns as executive producer. The project will be produced by Universal Media Studios in association with McGibbon/Parriott Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment. And since no show can have too many executive producers, Stephanie Davis, Howard Klein and Molly Madden ("Picture Perfect") will also serve as executive producers for 3 Arts.

Based on the bestselling novel by Grazer, "The Starter Wife" is described as a sexy, savvy and wickedly funny tour de force about life after divorce and one woman redefining herself after years of marriage to a Hollywood studio head. The miniseries earned 10 Emmy nominations, with Judy Davis winning for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie.
