Save The Date: Netflix Has Set Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's Sitcom For May 8th

Sorry third season of "Orange is the New Black," but the Netflix event of 2015 as far as we’re concerned is the premiere of "Grace and Frankie," the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin sitcom that has the following glorious premise:

The series follows long-time rivals Grace and Frankie, who are brought together after their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married.

Fonda and Tomlin play the titular rivals, while none other than Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play their gay husbands. Coming to us via "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman, Netflix has now set May 8th as the day we’ll all spend an entire evening with Fonda, Tomlin and — we hope — unconfirmed but obvious special guest star Dolly Parton.
