From Broadway to Bravo!
Bravo is thrilled to announced that Tony Award-winning actress Bernadette Peters will guest star on our first scripted series Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce. She'll be playing the role of Annie, the mother of Layla (played by Janeane Garofalo) who comes to town to help her with the kids.
Set to premiere December 2 at 10p ET/PT, Girlfriends' Guide... follows Abby (Lisa Edelstein), whose career and marriage implode in one very public moment and she finds herself turning to her new divorced friends as she navigates life back on the singles' scene.
One of Broadway’s most critically acclaimed performers, Bernadette has won numerous accolades including three Tony Awards, a Golden Globe, two Grammy Awards, three Emmy nominations and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Peters is particularly noted for her starring roles in Broadway musicals, including Follies, A Little Night Music, Song and Dance, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Annie Get Your Gun, Gypsy, among many others.
She's not the only guest star who's joined the show. Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) will also guest star in an upcoming episode as Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer-Prize winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.
