The Starter Wife

CONCEPT Last year’s six-hour mini about heroine Molly (Debra Messing) navigating single motherhood, romance, and a new career alongside bosom buddy Joan (Judy Davis) and gay pal Rodney (Chris Diamantopoulos) gets the full series treatment.
THE SCOOP Molly suffers another breakup and gives up on men. But, wait, this is chick lit! Where’s the dude?! ”She’s found this great guy,” admits exec producer Josann McGibbon. ”What happens when you swear off men and a new love interest shows up in your life? It’s like, ‘Oh, never mind!”’
BOTTOM LINE Friday-night TV, tucked-in tykes, and a bottle of rosé? Sounds heavenly for the romance-loving ladies.
