Janeane Garofalo (“Reality Bites”) was originally attached to star as a series regular, but will be written out sometime in the first season after appearing in at least some episodes.

In the clip, which places the series somewhere in-between Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise and HBO’s beloved “Sex and The City,” the cast members are featured in various states of undress as they tackle issues ranging from marriage and infidelity, to cougar-dom and three-ways — all while balancing parenthood and careers.

The show, inspired by Vicki Iovine’s book series of the same name, “follows Abby McCarthy (Edelstein), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Adelstein), America’s once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall.

As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends rather than her married ones for advice. Her friend Lyla (Garofalo) is a legendary no-nonsense entertainment lawyer who is in a constant “War of the Roses” battle with her ex-husband, and Phoebe (Garrett) is a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex. Meanwhile, a rival attorney at Lyla’s firm, Delia (Zadegan), is hired as Abby’s divorce attorney.”
