Debra Messing (Will & Grace, Ned and Stacy) stars in the six-hour mini-series. Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon (Runaway Bride, 3 Men and a Little Lady) wrote the screenplay, and the Emmy-nominated Jon Avnet (Uprising, The Burning Bed, Fried Green Tomatoes) has directed and produced the event.

    Starter Wife reaches finish line

    When USA Network commissioned a miniseries for The Starter Wife in 2007, the ratings and critical acclaim came pouring in. Thinking it had a bona fide hit on its hands, USA opted to turn the show into a regular series and aired 10 episodes in 2008. Unfortunately, things didn't go so well the second time around.
