NBC’s announced the midseason premiere dates for the new shows, Good Girls and Rise. Good Girls joins the network’s primetime lineup on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT. Rise arrives a few weeks later, premiering on Tuesday, March 13th at 10pm ET/PT.
Good Girls snagged the prime spot behind the season 14 premiere of The Voice featuring coaches Kelly Clarkson, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. Rise earned the 10pm ET/PT time slot immediately following the season finale of This Is Us for its premiere. Following Rise‘s premiere, the series will move to 9pm ET/PT.
Good Girls comes from Jenna Bans and stars Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Another Period), Retta (Parks and Recreation, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce), Mae Whitman (Parenthood, The Duff), Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly), Manny Montana (Graceland), Lidya Jewett (Hidden Figures), Izzy Stannard (Brad’s Status), and Matthew Lillard (Twin Peaks, Bosch).
Bans writes and executive produces, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Masters of Sex, Justified, Curb Your Enthusiasm) directing and executive producing. Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jeannine Renshaw is also executive producing.
The Good Girls Plot: When three suburban moms get tired of trying to make ends meet, they decide it’s time to stick up for themselves by robbing the local grocery store. But when the manager catches a glimpse of one of them and the loot is far more than they expected, it doesn’t take long for the three best friends to realize the perfect getaway will be harder than they think.
Friday Night Lights‘ Jason Katims and Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller created Rise, with Katims directing and executive producing. Seller, Flody Suarez, and Michelle Lee also serve as executive producers. The series stars Josh Radnor, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joseph Tippett, Shirley Rumierk, and Rosie Perez.
The Rise Plot: Rise is a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story.
