There's a lot of great series and shows coming to Netflix this month. Like, Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde! And another great Netflix original is being introduced. Grace and Frankie, Netflix's new funny and fearless original comedy featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. It is the perfect example of how today’s families can shift, rearrange and blend in unexpected ways.
GRACE AND FRANKIE 5/08/15 In GRACE AND FRANKIE, Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”) star as two women whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, they form an unlikely bond to face an uncertain future together and discover a new definition of “family,” with laughter, tears and plenty of mood enhancers along the way.
BETWEEN 5/21/15 BETWEEN is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves. **The show will air 6 episodes. One episode every Thursday at 8:30pm PT, starting 5/21**
JEN KIRKMAN: I'M GONNA DIE ALONE (AND I FEEL FINE) 5/22/15 A Netflix comedy special featuring renowned story-teller Jen Kirkman, best known for her appearances on Chelsea Lately and the award-winning web series Drunk History.
