“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein, “House”), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Paul Adelstein, “Private Practice”), America’s once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends, rather than her married ones, for advice.

When she hires Delia (Necar Zadegan, “Emily Owens, MD”) as her divorce attorney, Abby’s brother Max (Patrick Heusinger, “Royal Pains”), who fought hard for the right to marry, questions his sister on how she can so easily decide to walk away from her own marriage.
