Sara Bareilles

Sara Bareilles stars as Dawn, former member of the short-lived 90s girl group Girls5eva, who is now a bit restless in life managing her family's small Italian restaurant in Queens. When the opportunity arises, Dawn reluctantly gets the band back together for a Girls5eva reunion and it might just be exactly what she needed.

Renée Elise Goldsberry

Renée Elise Goldsberry stars as 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.

Paula Pell

Paula Pell stars as Gloria. Since the group disbanded, Gloria has since become a dentist and come out of the closet. Now living with her elderly father, she yearns for more in life than looking in people's mouths and giving her dad heart pills.

Busy Philipps

Busy Philipps stars 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.
