Bravo is segueing into the scripted world with two new series, while also bringing back familiar faces, including Caroline Manzo and Tom Colicchio for spin-offs of their successful shows, the network announced Tuesday at its upfront presentation.
Slated to premiere in 2015, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce stars Lisa Edelstein as a self-help book author who hides the fact that she's separated from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in Los Angeles. Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett play her best friends and Paul Adelstein plays her soon-to-be ex-husband.

When Beau Garrett first auditioned for Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, she admits producers didn't think she was tough enough to play FBI Agent Gina LaSalle.

While he's absorbing every detail, everybody else is focused on the fact that at the head of the table is an actress playing a corpse in a state of extreme decomposition.
Whitaker, who won an Oscar for The Last King of Scotland, stars as FBI special agent Sam Cooper in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, the new spin-off of the wildly popular CBS series. While other actors simply want to hit their marks, he's seeking out thematic nuances and offering sharp, emotional performance variations during rehearsals — for a scene featuring a decomposing female corpse.
