Jane & Lily are "Grace & Frankie"

The show's premise sounds hilarious (at least for a short run) as it's about two enemies whose husbands leave them for each other. Grace & Frankie slowly becomes friends.

There's no word yet on when we'll see it, but it joins about 4 other new shows Netflix has ordered in the wake of their smash success creating original programming: Orange is the New Black and House or Cards are both sensations and apparently even Hemlock Grove generated strong numbers despite being shamelessly terrible. 

 The new comedy is created by Marta Kauffman. If that name sounds familiar it's because she's brought the world "Friends". With two formidable and now underused comic talents like Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on board this could be really special.

The only logical question that remains...


Who do we have to sleep with to get Dolly Parton on the show?

I nearly passed out when reading the press release. Netflix is on an unstoppable roll. Amazon may think they're coming for the crown, but Netflix just keeps climbing higher.

I absolutely cannot wait for this.

If you had told me I won the lotto, I could scarcely be more excited. Netflix Netflix Netflix, you devil you.

I am now smacking my foot on the floor just like a high Judy/Jane Fonda--just call me "Thumper."

This announcement is giving me LIFE.

Firstly, Lily Tomlin FTW. Lily Tomlin for EVERYTHING. Secondly, Jane Fonda. You GET that career resurgence, girl!

Thirdly, if Dolly Parton does somehow become part of this, I will probably explode (along with the rest of the gay internet).

You don't have to be gay to be over-the-moon excited about ANYTHING with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. Add in comic writing from Marta and I'm gonna explode!

We can't ever get enough of these two ladies. I'm a yes, please, as soon as possible.
