Plot Synopsis

Created by Kay Mellor, GIRLFRIENDS is a one-hour drama series that centers on three women of a certain age who are juggling the challenges of modern life when a tragedy exposes secrets that put their friendship to the test. After the dramatic and sudden death of Linda's husband Micky, childhood friends Linda, Sue, and Gail find themselves back together again. Each has her own problems to face -- from a looming divorce from the husband she still loves and the loss of a high-powered job through age discrimination, to juggling the endless responsibilities of their grandchildren and ageing mothers. As widowed Linda tries to come to terms with being on her own after over 30 years of marriage, she and her girlfriends are horrified to find that this could be the least of her worries. As questions over the circumstances of Micky's death start to be asked, accusations reveal secrets, deception and doubts that tear at their friendship. Will it endure or will it be severely put to the test? This six-episode had its U.S. premiere on Monday, January 29, 2018, as Acorn TV released the first episode of the series, with one new episode released each Monday through March 5.
