Sara Bareilles has announced that she will be part of a new show on Peackcock TV. She announced the news on social media, writing, “Big news! More coming soon… #girls5eva is coming to @peacocktv. So thrilled to be a part of this show! Stay tuned!”
Tina Fey will produce the show.
According to People, “The show will follow a former ’90s girl band as they reunite after their song is sampled by a young rapper. Bareilles, 40, will play Dawn, a member of the group who is now managing her family’s small Italian restaurant in Queens, New York. While Dawn is a bit reluctant to get the band together, it turns out to be exactly what she needed.”
Sara Bareilles recently spoke out about the new project in a press release. She said, “It is a pinch-me moment to get to cross paths creatively with women like Meredith Scardino and Tina Fey, who I have been a fan of forever. I am a longtime admirer of so many of the characters they have brought to life in other projects, and I am already in love with the women at the center of Girls5eva. I am so excited to help bring to life what I know will be a smart, creative, hilarious show with a lot of heart.”
