The group's former star Wickie (Renée Elise Goldsberry), bored dentist Gloria (Paula Bell), and Real Housewives reject Summer (Busy Philipps) are all painfully aware of how desperate they might look, but couldn't be happier to get on board if it means escaping their jobs, kids and debt for a while.

Unfortunately, the reunion also includes their perverted manager Larry (Jonathan Hadary), a self-proclaimed "ally" who's proud of being slightly less creepy than he used to be.

Laden with cringe, blink-and-you'll-miss-'em jabs at the showbiz industry and a catchy original tune or two, Girls5eva has Tina Fey and Meredith Scardino's fingerprints all over it, and is looking like an instant smash hit for Peacock.
