Abby is attempting to start her life as a single woman in her 40’s in Los Angeles. As she attempts to navigate this she begins to seek advice from her divorced friends, instead of her married ones which leads to some unexpected and life-changing experiences.

 Girlfriends’ Guide was originally set up at Showtime in 2012 but when Showtime passed, Bravo picked it up as its second pilot order. (The first pilot order did not make it to series) The series order for Girlfriends’ Guide comes two years after Bravo announced that it would be entering into the scripted arena. Girlfriend’s Guide will soon be followed by other scripted series. “This is a toe in the water,” Bravo’s President Berwick noted. As of right now, There is no plan yet how to launch Girlfriend’s Guide but Berwick suggested that they “have the benefit of having great natural big-reach shows to launch out of” and “with the comedy and drama in (Bravo’s) heavily serialized reality shows, there is a natural connection”, that would make for an easy flow from them to the scripted Girlfriend’s Guide.
