Jane Fonda And Lily Tomlin Get Ditched By Their Husbands In New Netflix Series

Netflix has broken ground in original television programming with a political drama, prison dramedy and horror series, but now they're going for classic female comedy.

The streaming provider has ordered a 13-episode series of "Grace and Frankie," a new comedy starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. The half-hour series comes from "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman, so we know it's going to be golden.

Fonda and Tomlin will play Grace and Frankie, respectively, two nemeses who are brought together when their husbands fall in love and run off to get married. The series won't premiere on Netflix until 2015, but until then, let's hope for a that Dolly Parton cameo to round out this almost "9 to 5" sequel.
