Friends with Better Lives is an American sitcom that aired on CBS from March to May 2014 . The German-language first broadcast took place from December 2 to 30, 2014 on ProSieben .

In May 2014, CBS announced the cancellation of the series after only five episodes aired.


The series follows the lives of six friends who are all at different stages in their lives and think that each of the other would be better off. Will was only recently separated from his wife, but doesn't really want this to be true. Jules and Lowell got engaged recently, while Kate, a successful career woman, has no luck choosing dates. The round is completed by Andi and Bobby, a seemingly happily married couple who, however, long for the old days.
