Netflix’s partial 9 To 5 reunion, Grace And Frankie, sees Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin starring as longtime rivals whose husbands fall in love, then announce their intent to marry. And now it seems one of those husbands will be played by Martin Sheen, who sends Fonda’s world into disarray when he gives into his desire to marry the husband of his wife’s nemesis. The show is written and created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, whose credits include shows such as Friends, According To Jim, and Home Improvement. It’s set to start its 13-episode run in 2015—and given its producers’ credits backing them, it could mark a Netflix first for uproarious laugh tracks.
