11 July 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christina Hendricks is set to the star in the upcoming NBC drama Good Girls.

Her role was originally filled by Kathleen Rose Perkins but has since been recast, and the former Mad Man star has now come on board with the pilot to be reshot this fall. The series will debut midseason.

Described as a comedy/drama mixing elements of Breaking Bad and Thelma & Louise, Good Girls tells the story of three suburban moms – Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta – who decide to rob a local supermarket with toy guns to make ends meet. But after the store manager gets a glimpse of them, and with more loot than they were expecting, the friends realise that their getaway won’t be as easy as first thought.

The series will also star Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

Christina Hendricks to Star in NBC Drama ‘Good Girls’

10 July 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Christina Hendricks has been cast in NBC’s upcoming drama “Good Girls,” Variety has learned.

The “Mad Men” alum joins the series in the role originally set for Kathleen Rose Perkins, who was recast. The pilot will reshoot this fall with Hendricks on board, and the series will debut midseason.

In “Good Girls,” when three suburban moms — played by Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta — get tired of trying to make ends meet, they 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.

The series has been described as a comedy-infused drama that mixes a little “Thelma & Louise” with a bit of “Breaking Bad.”
