Girls5eva - Renée Elise Goldsberry Joins Cast By Elvis (October 1, 2020, 6:40 pm)
Hamilton alum Renée Elise Goldsberry is set to star opposite Sara Bareilles in Girls5eva, Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Meredith Scardino’s original series for NBCU’s Peacock.
Created and written by Scardino, in Girls5eva, 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?
Goldsberry will play Wickie, the glamorous, big-voiced, star of the group back in the day. Wickie’s solo career hit a ditch, but she’s determined to use this new opportunity to retake her rightful place as pop royalty.
