Paul Adelstein is heading to Bravo, but not as a husband to a housewife, but rather as a husband on one of the network’s newly scripted series, Deadline reports.
Adelstein, known for playing Dr. Cooper Freedman on ‘Private Practice,' has joined Bravo’s scripted pilot ‘The Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce’ based on the book series by Vicki Iovine. The pilot is written by ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Marti Noxon.
The series follows Abby, played by ‘House’ alum Lisa Edelstein, an accomplished author known for her best-selling self-help books. However, her life isn’t quite an open book since she’s been hiding her separation from her husband -- this is where Adelstein steps in -- and trying to live her life in Los Angeles as a single woman in her early 40s.
The hour-long dramedy definitely sounds like a good fit for Bravo, which is known for its ‘The Real Housewives’ reality shows.
Adelstein’s been quiet on the acting front ever since ‘Private Practice’ came to an end, so it’ll be nice to see him back on the small screen. Fans can also expect him to appear on ABC’s hit drama ‘Scandal’ later this month. So far, his role is being kept secret, but ‘Scandal’ creator Shonda Rhimes told TVLine that, “[He] is incredibly, crazy surprising in his role." She added, “Like, you will not even recognize him.”
