Netflix will release the first season of Grace And Frankie starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda on Friday.

In the single-camera sitcom, adversaries Grace (played by Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) are unexpectedly brought together when their husbands announce that they are gay and getting hitched to each other. Martin Sheen (The West Wing) plays Robert, Fonda's husband, while Sam Waterston (Law and Order) plays Saul, Tomlin's husband.

With their lives turned upside down, the women find themselves permanently intertwined.

Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris created Grace And Frankie.

Speaking to Deadline, Kauffman said that the show's gay twist “was really more about the best way to talk about the issue of aging as if you're starting your life over. It's the best way to get at that stuff. … And my hope is that it's not the dark and cynical version, but more the aspirational, that you can do amazing things at any age – you can start over at any age.”

Netflix will release the show's first 13-episode season on Friday, May 8.
