Girls5eva teaser previews Peacock’s new Tina Fey-produced comedy
Peacock has released the first teaser for the upcoming comedy series titled Girls5eva, providing us our first look at Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles and Hamilton alum Renée Elise Goldsberry as they lead a reunited 90s girl group. The series hails from Emmy-winning actress-producer Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, Meredith Scardino and Jeff Richmond. Also featuring Busy Phillips and Paula Pell, you can check out the video in the player below!
In Girls5eva, when a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90’s gets sampled by a young rapper, its members reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot. They may be grown women balancing spouses, kids, jobs, debt, aging parents, and shoulder pain, but can’t they also be Girls5eva?
The main cast’s official description are listed below:
Bareilles is set to portray the roles of Dawn, one of the former members of the disbanded 90s girl group. Years after her short-lived music career has ended, she is now a bit restless in life as she manages her family’s small Italian restaurant in Queens. However, when the opportunity arises, Dawn reluctantly gets the band back together for a Girls5eva reunion and it might just be exactly what she needed.
Goldsberry will play Wickie, the glamorous, big-voiced, star of the group back in the day. Wickie’s solo career hit a ditch, but she’s determined to use this new opportunity to retake her rightful place as pop royalty.
Philipps will star as Summer, the most bubbly, but least talented member of the group. Summer is now a Real Housewives reject in yoga pants living in a New Jersey McMansion.
Pell will be playing Gloria, who since the group disbanded, has become a dentist and come out of the closet. Now living with her elderly father, Gloria yearns for more in life than looking in people’s mouths and giving her dad heart pills.
Girls5eva is created by 9-time Emmy winner Tina Fey and Meredith Scardino (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), who executive producing along with Robert Carlock, Jeff Richmond, David Miner and Eric Gurian. It is a co-production by Little Stranger, Bevel Gears, 3 Arts and Universal Television.
