The show centers around Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin), frenemies who find themselves unexpected roommates after their respective 20-year marriages come to a crashing halt upon learning that their husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) are in love with one another.

The series is a rarity on television(/Netflix), centering entirely around two older women–historically a tough premise to get greenlit by executives.

As Fonda explains, “Older women are the fastest growing demographic in the world. There’s a huge stereotype about what it means to be an older woman. We wanted to blow that out of the water.”

There’s also a digression about Tomlin’s inner-vaginal lubricant… that she makes with yams.

Watch the interview below.

The entire first season of Grace And Frankie available to stream on Netflix starting today (May 8).
