Debra Messing will return to her role as Molly Kagan in The Starter WifeGood 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.

I guess I'm the only one to say Yippeee! I loved the mini-series and was left wanting more!

This mini was barely watchable. It felt pathetic at times how bland the story was. Only good acting lifted it above the level where you actually force yourself to watch another episode because there was so much nonsense in-between the good scenes it hurt. Homeless guy saved the series for me. Sorta. Any less testosterone on this show and, as a man, you might've developed boobs watching ;-)

As if the miniseries wasn't painful enough. Debra will never be as good as she was when playing Grace.

You know, I hate it when they turn half decent mini-series into tv shows. Alot of times they ruin them but I guess Starter Wife has more stories to tell and everyone likes to think they are seeing the underbelly of Hollywood.
