Theatre fans are getting their comedy fix on the TV this spring as Girls5Eva debuts May 6 on Peacock. The musical comedy stars Hamilton Tony winner Reneé Elise Goldsberry, Tony nominees Sara Bareilles and Ashley Park, and screen favorites Paula Pell and Busy Philipps.

Girls5Eva follows a girl group 20 years after its heyday as they try to recapture the magic. All eight episodes of the first season drop on the streamer at the same time.

The previously released trailer above has a highlight for each of the main stars (Park seems to be an original member of the group, but is not involved in the present day timeline): Goldsberry's Wickie pretending to be boarding a private jet—when really she's just an airport worker; Philipps' Summer practicing her face slaps; Bareilles' Dawn knocking over a waiter while pulling a dance move; and Pell's Gloria discovering that the quartet have just been doused in Sprite.

In addition to the gals, the cast features Tony nominee Andrew Rannells and Daniel Breaker as Kev and Scott, husbands to Summer and Dawn, respectively, plus Mean Girls alum Erika Henningsen as a younger version of Gloria (Pell's character). The series hails from Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, and Meredith Scardino.
