The Starter Wife Author to Write NBC Show About Divorce

Gigi Levangie Grazer, author of the novel-turned-USA-miniseries The Starter Wife, will be writing a pilot for NBC all about divorce. The untitled dramedy is "about a couple in their 30s who are going through a divorce. But since neither has enough money to move out, they keep sharing their house while trying to disentangle their lives."

According to Levangie Grazer herself, "The theme of it can be summed up as, 'I hate you, hold me.' It's taking on the idea that divorce is the new marriage." The assumption here is that this project, like The Starter Wife, will most likely incorporate bits of Levangie Grazer's own experiences, as she and her husband, producer Brian Grazer, are in the process of divorcing (though curiously the two showed up together to the premiere of "The Starter Wife," which just seems ironic to me).

I love that this woman has taken the disastrous parts of her life and used them to create successful projects. In addition to the NBC pilot, Levangie Grazer's novel Maneater will be made into a miniseries for Lifetime, so I guess I should get to reading that one soon!
