'Good Girls' Picked Up to Series at NBC; Kathleen Rose Perkins to Be Recast
NBC handed out its third series pickup for the 2017-18 broadcast season.
Good Girls, produced by Universal Television, follows what happens when three suburban moms get tired of trying to make ends meet and decide it’s time to stick up for themselves by robbing the local supermarket at (toy) gunpoint. But when the manager catches a glimpse of one of them and the loot is far more than they expected, it doesn’t take long for the three best friends to realize the perfect getaway will be harder than they think.
Jenna Bans (Scandal) serves as showrunner on the series that NBC describes as a comedy-infused drama that mixes a little Thelma and Louise with a bit of Breaking Bad.
The drama has been a frontrunner through pilot season, earning raves for the cast's chemistry.
Overall, Good Girls is NBC's third new drama series for the 2017-18 season — with all of them produced in-house at Universal Television as the network puts a greater emphasis on ownership amid dwindling ratings and sinking ad dollars.
