Retta Good Girls

Retta to Star In NBC's Good Girls Pilot

NBC has found its third and final Good Girl.

Parks and Recreation vet Retta has joined NBC’s soapy drama pilot Good Girls, rounding out a cast that also includes Parenthood‘s Mae Whitman and Episodes‘ Kathleen Rose Perkins, TVLine has learned.

Penned by ex-Scandal EP Jenna Bans, the potential series follows three “good girl” suburban wives and mothers who, suddenly faced with dire circumstances, decide to stop playing it safe and risk everything to take their power back.

Retta will play Ruby, a protective, smart and likable wife and mother who takes desperate measures to care for her ailing 11-year-old daughter.

The cast also includes Matthew Lillard (The Bridge), Manny Montana (Conviction) and Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly).

Retta is currently co-starring in Bravo’s Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, which will come to an end following Season 5 (production of which wraps this spring).

    Great news! Happy Retta will be on the show as one of the ‘Good Girls’. Good cast they round out for the pilot. Hope it gets pickup to series!

    Yaaaaaayyy! Literally yesterday I was thinking how great it would be to have Retta back on my tv and here she is in a starring role, rather than as someone’s assistant or friend!

    Mae Whitman and Retta… this show better be amazing or I will be sorely disappointed.
