NBC Picks Up Crime Drama ‘Good Girls’ to Series

Kathleen Rose Perkins’ character will be recast after pilot

NBC has picked up crime drama “Good Girls” to series, the network announced Thursday.

One of the lead roles, played by Kathleen Rose Perkins in the pilot, will be recast for the series.

When three suburban moms 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 cast includes Retta, Mae Whitman, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

“Scandal” alum Jenna Bans will write and executive produce. Dean Parisot will direct and executive produce. Jeannine Renshaw will also serve as an EP.

“Good Girls” is produced by Universal Television.

NBC has also picked up several other new series including “AP Bio,” “Rise” and “The Brave,” previously titled “For God and Country.”

Earlier in the day, NBC renewed “Great News,” which joins “The Blacklist,” “Blindspot,” “Taken” and three of four of Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” shows in getting recent renewal news. On the flip side, the network has canceled “Timeless,” “Emerald City” and “Powerless.”
