Sara Bareilles was not in any genuine ’90s girl groups, but now you could say she was in a fictional just one.
The singer/songwriter/Broadway star has been solid in a lead function in Tina Fey and Robert Carlock‘s new comedy Girls5eva, which is coming before long to Peacock.
Girls5eva is about a just one-hit-wonder girl group that gets sampled by a youthful rapper and is inspired to reunite to give their pop star dreams just one more shot. “They may be grown women of all ages balancing spouses, kids, careers, personal debt, growing older moms and dads, and shoulder discomfort, but won’t be able to they also be Girls5eva?” the description reads.
Bareilles stars as Dawn, previous member of the group, who is now a bit restless in life as she manages her family’s tiny Italian cafe in Queens. When the opportunity arises, Dawn reluctantly gets the band again together for a Girls5eva reunion, and it might just be precisely what she wanted.
