In the series — which stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two women whose husbands leave their wives for each other — Nelson will play Guy, a love interest for Fonda’s Grace.

Since wrapping a six-season run as Parenthood‘s Zeek Braverman, Nelson has also signed on for NBC’s upcoming revival of Coach, which will pick up 18 years after the original ’90s sitcom left off.

Grace and Frankie, meanwhile, will debut on Netflix May 8.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Former Voice coaches Gwen Stefani, Cee Lo Green and Usher will return as advisors to the contestants on the April 27 performance show, E! Online reports.

* Girls star Lena Dunham is considering ending her HBO comedy after six seasons — though she does have plans to bring it to the big screen in a decade or so, she revealed to our sister site Variety.

* The Mysteries of Laura actress Janina Gavankar has been cast in CBS’ untitled comedy pilot from Modern Family producer Dan O’Shannon, Deadline reports. She will replace Noureen DeWulf (Anger Management) in the series — which revolves around a group of friends and family at different times in their lives — as Sabrina, co-worker of Adam Brody’s Andrew.

* ABC has unveiled the first teaser for The Bachelorette‘s upcoming season, in which 25 men will — sigh — decide whether they want to win the heart of Kaitlyn Bristowe or Britt Nilsson. Check out the video below, in which the tagline “50 Shades of Cray” has never proven more appropriate:

    Would be great if GIRLS ended after six seasons.

  2. BrightLight says:

    I want to see “Grace and Frankie” now more than ever.

  3. Mike says:

    C-Lo back to the Voice. Is this a good idea?

    • jennvozik says:

      I have no interest in seeing Cee-Lo return to ANYTHING. He and his “it isn’t rape if she doesn’t remember” BS can stay in whatever cave he’s been in.

  4. Luis says:

    I have never actively advocated for another human being’s death . . . the producers of the ?Bachelor/Bachelorette” are sorely testing me.

    Grace & Frankie looks terrible. I have this bad feeling it is going to be very stereotypical and offer little new to the world…

    • delfiteblu says:

      *I* think it looks terrific. It is, after all, 2/3 of the cast of Nine to Five and they were both hilarious in that. I just wish it weren’t on Netflix where I can’t see it. I can’t bear to watch TV on my computer.
