7 'Grace and Frankie' Trailer Moments So Funny, They're Proof This Netflix Show Is A Must-See — VIDEO
ICYMI: There's a new Netflix show coming you didn't know you needed, but will probably want to binge-watch for days regardless. From Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris of Home Improvement, Netflix's new series Grace and Frankie stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as two strong, smart, sensual women in their 70s who find themselves alone after their husbands — played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston — come out as gay, reveal their love for each other, and decide to get married. The entire first season is coming to Netflix on May 8, and if the promo trailer is any indication, Grace and Frankie is going to be hilarious.
The series reunites comedic duo Tomlin and Fonda, who starred together in the 1980 film 9 to 5, as they try to navigate being newly single ladies in an Odd Couple-esque friendship. The trailer sets up a classic unlikely friendship story: Grace drinks tea and is fancy, while Frankie eats Wheat Thins from the box, wears Ramones t-shirts, and is definitely more sloppy.Eventually though, the two become friends, bonding over wild, sensual bonfires, and liberal use of whipped topping. If you're sad and confused as to why Golden Girls isn't on Netflix and you need the hilarious wisdom of fabulous older ladies in your life, Grace and Frankie is here to heal you with laughter.
