Peters will play Lyla's mother Annie, who comes to town to help her with the kids.
"Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce," which premieres Dec. 2 at 10 PM ET, press notes state, "follows Abby (Lisa Edelstein, 'House'), whose career and marriage implode in one very public moment and she finds herself turning to her new divorced friends Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, 'Reality Bites') and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, 'Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior') as she navigates life back on the singles scene."
Peters is the recipient of three Tony Awards, a Golden Globe, two Grammy Awards and three Emmy nominations as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
