It's been a few decades since Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin
stuck it to the man in 9 to 5, but
this trailer for their new Netflix show Grace
and Frankie
proves they haven't lost their mojo.

The grand dames of entertainment and badass activism star in
this situational comedy from Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris (Home
Improvement
) about two women who find themselves in quite a predicament.
Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) aren't particularly chummy, but their
husbands are law partners, so they're forced to tolerate each other. As it
turns out, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) want to be more than
law partners; they both want a divorce so they can get married — to each other.

While Robert and Sol try to figure out how to navigate life
as newly out partners (who are, by the way, in their 70s), Grace and
Frankie have to find a way to pick up the pieces of their former lives and move
forward.

Keep an eye out for funny ladies June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn
Decker, along with familiar faces like Michael Gross (Family Ties), Corbin Bernsen (L.A.
Law
), Barry Bostwick (Spin City),
Christine Lahti (Chicago Hope), and
Joe Morton (Papa Pope on Scandal) when this sitcom premieres on Netflix on May 8.
