NEW SERIES OVERVIEW
Debra Messing returns as Molly Kagan in the hit series, The Starter Wife, which received ten Emmy Award nominations and a win for Judy Davis. Once Hollywood royalty and now ex-"Wife Of" a major movie producer, Molly Kagan (Messing) is determined to make her own place in the world.
While the miniseries centered on the summer of Molly's divorce that forced her to start over, in these all-new episodes, Molly has moved into a home of her own with her seven-year-old daughter Jaden and is ready to navigate her new life as a single mom and define herself on her own terms. While facing the very real challenges of trying to begin a new career at forty-something, Molly is now also juggling the ongoing emotional and financial complications of her divorce from Kenny (David Alan Basche), who could use a remedial course in parenting; new love interests, despite recently having sworn off men; and raising a grounded daughter in a town that doesn't exactly have its priorities straight. With the help of her loyal friends Joan (Emmy winner Judy Davis) and Rodney (Chris Diamantopoulos), who are trying to figure it all out for themselves too, as well as her new Starting Gate School ally, Liz (Danielle Nicolet), Molly will discover how to forge a new life even when her past is always present.
The Emmy, WGA and PGA-nominated writing team of Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott (Runaway Bride) return as executive producers along with Gigi Levangie Grazer, who penned the New York Times bestselling novel on which the miniseries was based.
