OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Lands Lead Role in Tina Fey’s New Comedy for Peacock

We all remember her fondly when she rocked the role of Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and now years later this Tony and Grammy Award-winning star has been cast in the lead role in a Tina Fey comedy series!  We are speaking of the one and only, Renée Elise Goldsberry.

The Hamilton alum will star opposite Sara Bareilles in Girls5eva, about a 1990s girl group that gets another shot at stardom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Goldsberry will play Wickie, the glamorous, big-voiced star of the group back in the day. Her solo career has hit a ditch, but she’s determined to use a new opportunity to retake her rightful place as pop royalty.”

In a statement, Goldsberry expressed:”This wickedly talented team is creating something brave and new  I’m grateful I get to be in the room with them. I honestly can’t think of a better way to transition out of this year and into the new one than laughing with strong and beautiful women.”

In the log lines for the series: Girls5eva centers on the members of a one-hit wonder group from the 1990s. When a young rapper samples their hit, they reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot. They may be grown women balancing spouses, kids, jobs, debt, aging parents, and shoulder pain, but can‘t they also be Girls5eva?

The show from Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Meredith Scardino will bow on NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock.  No date yet has been given for when production will begin or when it might premiere but we will keep you updated.

So, what do you think of the news of Renée landing yet another feather in her talented cap on a comedy series that sounds right up her alley? Comment below.

All Soaps Now On Production Breaks Due To Coronavirus

Over the last 24 hours there were more production shut downs in Hollywood, and the announcements that both The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful have both halted taping new episodes for the time-being due to Coronavirus precautions. Both CBS Daytime dramas tape at CBS Television City , where as of Tuesday March 17th, work has stopped at the soundstages.

Production is predicted to resume after two weeks. As of now, this will not impact viewers at all as the series tape weeks ahead of air. Obviously, since the COVID-19 pandemic is ever-changing updates to this may happen along the way if production does not swing back in full a month or so from now.

As well, Days of our Lives which had a scheduled production dark week for the week of March 16th, apparently is taking an extra dark week for the safety of all the week of March 23rd,   DAYS tapes so far ahead that a temporary halt in production will in no way effect viewing for fans of the series.

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati noted:We have also halted production but we already taped Halloween and some of November sweeps so there will be plenty of Days of Our Lives for the moment. Next week I am writing Christmas”

General Hospital was the first soap to note they will be shutting down production last week as more and more businesses and life, in general has come to a halt, and we all do our part to try to control the pandemic.  The ABC daytime drama is taking a break through April 10th
