The online streaming service will show Grace and Frankie, starring Fonda and Tomlin as long-time foes who come together when their husbands desert them after falling in love.

The first season of 13 half-hour episodes will premiere on Netflix next year.

The two actresses co-starred a quarter of a century ago in the comedy hit, Nine to Five.

Fonda recently appeared on HBO's The Newsroom and was seen in the film The Butler. Tomlin appeared in last year's Tina Fey comedy, Admission.

The series' writer Marta Kauffman was also one of the creators of smash-hit Friends.
