Friends with Better Lives is a romantic comedy about six friends at different stages in their lives – married, divorced, newly engaged and single – who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better.
Andi and Bobby are happily married with a toddler and another baby on the way, but at times long for the days when they had less responsibility and more fun; Will is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife; Jules and Lowell are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate has a successful career but may have a breakdown when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged. When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering… who really has the better life?
Friends with Better Lives boasts a popular ensemble cast, featuring Kevin Connolly (Entourage), a Golden Globe® Award nominee who plays Bobby; Majandra Delfino (The Office) plays Andi, Zoe Lister-Jones (Whitney) plays Kate, Brooklyn Decker (New Girl) plays Jules, Rick Donald (Underbelly) plays Lowell and Will is played by James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek).
Friends with Better Lives was created by Dana Klein; Klein, Aaron Kaplan and Dave Hemingson serve as executive producers. The series is distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
This will be the fourth successful series launch on Romedy Now, joining Witches of East End, Kitchen Confidential and Ally McBeal, which all launched in January of this year.
