After she receives an unexpected phone call from her Movie Mogul husband announcing that he wants a divorce, Molly (Debra Messing) is instantly transformed from a Wife Of into a Starter Wife. Blacklisted all over town from premieres to Pilates, Molly suddenly has a blank calendar and too much time on her hands. All hope seems lost until Molly's friend Joan (Judy Davis) comes to the rescue with an invitation to stay at her beach house in Malibu Colony, one of the most tony, private playgrounds of Hollywood's elite. With the help of her friends, Molly realizes that though her Wife Of status has been taken away, she has been given something far more valuable in return: a Do Over. Now it's up to her to decide who she really is and what she wants her life to be. Because, after all, Wife Goes On.
