“Grace and Frankie” Season 2 Gets a Trailer
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are about to return as improbably friends Grace and Frankie for their second season.
From the looks of this trailer, they’ll be getting into even more trouble than they did season 1.
Look for episodes to start streaming on Friday, May 6th.
“Grace and Frankie” Renewed for Season 3 at Netflix
As the recent announcement of awards nominations show, streaming services like Netflix are faring quite well amongst traditional broadcast, cable, and even premium cable networks. Their formula for programming is working and thus Netflix and the like are going to stay the course (that includes expanding their programming) and a renewal for a third season of Grace and Frankie is a part of that plan.
Along with the accolades for her turn in Grandma, Lily Tomlin is having a really good year.
Petition Grows For The Stars of “Grace and Frankie” To Be Paid Like They’re Stars
(via The Wrap)
Apparently, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who play the titular stars of “Grace and Frankie” are paid as much as male supporting cast members Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen.
While the pay is equal here, the simple matter of fact is that Fonda and Tomlin are the top-billed stars of the show, which should warrant the most pay. However, it’s not the case and there doesn’t seem to be any apparent good reason for it.
Do Waterston and Sheen have a pricy rate for online streaming series these days? Even if they are, Fonda and Tomlin are just as established and that should bring back the difference in pay back to who is higher on the cast member totem pole.
It’s very similar to a sports team paying their star players as much as the rest of the team, even though they’re the stat sheet leaders night after night.
As of this post, the petition has over 9.500 signatures on and you can sign it here.
Netflix Orders Season 2 of “Grace and Frankie”
While you’re probably still suspicious of Netflix’s reviving Full House, they are doing well to also focus on their own homegrown original comedy series.
If they continue the path they’re on now, Netflix will probably have a much bigger original comedy slate by the time this next season of Grace and Frankie comes out.
Here’s The First Trailer For Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie”
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin play “frenemies” that come together over their husbands, played by Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen, revealing that they are gay and in love with each other. You in?
Given the premise, Grace & Frankie very easily could have been a multi cam sitcom, but it’s not and we think it will be all the better for it.
All the episodes will be released on Netflix on May 8th.
