The Starter Wife

The Starter Wife is a USA Network miniseries, featuring Debra Messing (Grace of Will & Grace, Stacy of Ned & Stacy, and doubtlessly eventually to be the second name in some other sitcom title) as a Hollywood industry wife who finds herself let loose by her teen-star-banging husband. There are some humorous moments, although it’s hard for me to get too involved with the drama of it all — if you find that your swanky clubs don’t want you when you’re an ex, and that your supposed friends drop you when you’re no longer useful to them, my reaction is more “ya shouldn’t have supported those clubs and those friends in the first place” than to feel sorry now that you’re on the other side of the snob line. There was one character whose calm demeanor made his scenes particularly watchable, but he seemed to be written out by the end of this first installment in a miniseries. Could watch more, probably won’t bother.
