USA gives series order to The Starter Wife
Good news for Debra Messing and all of the others involved in the miniseries The Starter Wife. After garnering some pretty decent ratings and several Emmy nominations, USA Networks has given a full series order to the comedy-drama based on the successful novel by Gigi Levangie Grazer.
Former Will & Grace star Messing will return as Molly Kagan, the former Hollywood wife who is now experiencing a second chance at life after her recent divorce. Also returning will be the executive production team of Grazer, Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott. There is no information as to when filming will begin for the premiere season of The Starter Wife or when the first episode will air.
Wife was nominated for ten Emmy awards this year, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Movie or Miniseries for Messing's performance and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Movie or Miniseries for Judy Davis. Davis won for her performance.
