The Starter Wife: Premier

The Starter Wife on USA started out strong with its premier episode on Thursday, 5/31. It has a bit of an adult fairytale feeling that creatively shows the Hollywood (literally since she lives there), fairytale ending Debra Messing‘s character, Molly Kagan, had when she married her movie studio exec. husband.

But, as a clever show should do, the story begins at the end: with her divorce and shunning from the high society of Hollywood housewives. In other words, when she goes from wife to starter wife.

I love Debra Messing from Will & Grace and her movies as well, but when the character intros were evolving on the premier episode, I was a little concerned about the fact that one of her three best friends, Rodney, is a gay man. But, not to worry. Not only is her character far calmer than Grace, but so is her relationship with her gay friend which works beautifully for this series.

Other than this relationship, the show has many highlights from her great friendships with some of the only real people left in Hollywood, to her relationship with her daughter, and of course, some promising romantic possibilities. The Starter Wife is definitely one to watch this summer, so catch it on USA Thursday nights at 9/8c.
