THE BAND IS COMING TOGETHER: BUSY PHILIPPS JOINS NEW PEACOCK COMEDY "GIRLS5EVA" FROM TINA FEY

New York Times Best-Selling author, actor, activist, writer and host Busy Philipps is set to star in Girls5eva, the upcoming Peacock comedy from Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Meredith Scardino. Philipps joins the previously announced cast including Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Emmy nominee and Broadway actress Sara Bareilles, and Grammy and Tony Award-winning actress and singer Renée Elise Goldsberry.

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.

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?

Philipps is a New York Times Best-Selling author, actor, activist, writer, podcast host, and previous late-night talk show host of "Busy Tonight." Philipps served as executive producer on the show, alongside Tina Fey.  In 2018, Philipps released a collection of humorous autobiographical essays in her book "This Will Only Hurt A Little" that was immediately a New York Times Best Seller the first week. The book offers unfiltered and candid stories and was published by Simon and Schuster's Touchstone division.  On the big screen, Philipps was in the romantic comedy, "I Feel Pretty," opposite Amy Schumer and Michelle Williams, and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein. She also appeared in Joel Edgerton's thriller "The Gift," alongside Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall. On television, Philipps was last seen in "Vice Principals," an 18-episode comedy from the creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill. Her other television credits include, starring opposite of Courteney Cox on the popular comedy "Cougar Town," starring in Judd Apatow and Paul Feig's critically praised series "Freaks and Geeks," and she was a series regular in Kevin Williamson's award- winning coming-of-age series "Dawson's Creek." Philipps is represented by Carrie Byalick at B. Company, ICM and attorney Cheryl Snow at Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman, Inc.

Kat Coiro ("SHE-HULK," "Marry Me") is set to direct the pilot of Girls5eva.

Meredith Scardino serves as creator and executive producer for the series. Tina Fey (Little Stranger, Inc.), Robert Carlock (Bevel Gears), Jeff Richmond, David Miner (3 Arts Entertainment), Eric Gurian (Little Stranger) will also serve as executive producers. Girls5eva is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
