Bravo’s first scripted series, Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce, includes a storyline about a guy separated from his wife who’s dating a CW starlet, which makes for one of the pilot episode’s funnier lines. Series creator Marti Noxon got asked about the reference and admitted she’s created a fictitious CW series which this starlet stars. It’s called Blood Sisters; it’s about twin sisters — one’s a vampire slayer and one’s a vampire.
“When are you taking Blood Sisters to the CW” a critic joked-but-not-really of Noxon, who is well known for her work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
In February Bravo announced it has acquired Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, based on the best-selling Girlfriends’ Guide books by Vicki Iovine. The series follows Abby (Lisa Edelstein), a self-help book author who hides the fact that she’s separated from her husband, as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her early 40s in Los Angeles. Noxon is executive producing with Dawn Olmstead, Iovine, Meryl Poster and Adam Brooks, who directed the pilot. The series co-stars Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett, with Paul Adelstein and Carrie Fisher featured in the pilot.
