Ajay Trigunayat, CEO, English Entertainment Channels, Times Television Network, said, “Romedy Now is clearly the No. 1 English GEC today with a whopping 84 per cent lead over its nearest competitor (TAM, 15-34 AB, 8 Metros, Wk 10-11 ’14). We are really pleased to launch this fantastic and very funny ensemble comedy in India, just hours after its world premiere in the US.”

‘Friends with Better Lives’ is a romantic comedy about six friends at different stages in their lives – married, divorced, newly engaged and single – who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better. Andi and Bobby are happily married with a toddler and another baby on the way, but at times long for the days when they had less responsibility and more fun. Will is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife. Jules and Lowell are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate has a successful career but may have a breakdown when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged. When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering who really has the better life.

The comedy boasts of a popular ensemble cast, featuring Kevin Connolly (Entourage), a Golden Globe Award nominee who plays Bobby; Majandra Delfino (The Office) plays Andi, Zoe Lister-Jones (Whitney) plays Kate, Brooklyn Decker (New Girl) plays Jules, Rick Donald (Underbelly) plays Lowell and Will is played by James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek).

This will be the fourth successful series launch on Romedy Now, joining ‘Witches of East End’, ‘Kitchen Confidential’ and ‘Ally McBeal’, which all launched in January this year.
