USA Renews Its Vows with The Starter Wife

USA's miniseries The Starter Wife isn't so mini anymore. The network is turning the show into a weekly series, with Debra Messing reprising her role as Molly Kagan.

USA is on board for 10 hourlong episodes of the series, which will start airing in early summer 2008. No word on whether the rest of the cast will be back (Joe Mantegna, who played Lou, Peter Jacobson, who played Kenny, and Miranda Otto, who played Cricket, are now starring in other series) or what the proposed story line for these 10 episodes will be. Network executives said they're bringing the show back thanks to the creative team's chemistry, the show's commercial success, and its 10 Emmy nominations, including an acting win for Judy Davis.

I enjoyed The Starter Wife when it aired over the summer, but I thought it came to a natural end. I was also hoping we'd never have to actually deal with the fallout from Molly ending up with Sam, which was one of the few things I truly hated about the miniseries. Starter Wife fans, are you on board with this becoming a series? And what do you think happens next?
