The film tells the story of a gay couple who got married when same-sex marriage became legal and now must deal with the fact that it’s time to get a divorce, reports Deadline.
It follows Daniel and Connor who “became the first gay couple in NYC to get legally married in 2015 and poster boys for LGBTQ love and acceptance.”
“The only problem now is: they’re getting an even more epic divorce,” the description continues. “It’s a War of the Roses-style battle for the ages as Daniel and Connor viciously, hilariously, and poignantly become Ex-Husbands.”
Ex-Husbands will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video after the streaming giant won the rights to the project.
The release date is yet to be confirmed but it follows up Eichner’s previously announced gay rom-com Bros.

Billy celebrated the news of the project saying it will be the “first rom com about gay men ever produced by a major studio, and, apparently, I’m the first openly gay man to ever write and star in their own studio film.”
