Friends With Better Lives (FT)

CBS shortlived comedy series Friends With Better Lives will receive its UK premiere on Comedy Central UK on Monday September 22nd at 9pm, it has been announced.

Friends With Better Lives follows a group six friends at different stages in their lives – married, divorced, newly engaged and single – who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better. Andi and Bobby are happily married with a toddler and another baby on the way, but at times long for the days when they had less responsibility and more fun; Will is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife; Jules and Lowell are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate has a successful career but may have a breakdown when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged. When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering… who really has the better life?

The comedy series, which aired just one 13 episode season before being cancelled by CBS this past May, hails from Friends producer Dana Klein and stars James Van Der Beek, Zoe Lister, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald, Kevin Connolly and Majandra Delfino. Friends With Better Lives was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and was acquired by Comedy Central UK in March 2014 following a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. The executive producers are Dana Klein, Aaron Kaplan and Dave Hemingson.
