Christina Hendricks to Star in NBC Drama ‘Good Girls’

Christina Hendricks has been cast in NBC’s upcoming drama “Good Girls,” Variety has learned.

The “Mad Men” alum joins the series in the role originally set for Kathleen Rose Perkins, who was recast. The pilot will reshoot this fall with Hendricks on board, and the series will debut midseason.

In “Good Girls,” when three suburban moms — played by Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta — get tired of trying to make ends meet, they decide it’s time to stick up for themselves by robbing the local supermarket at toy gunpoint. 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.

The series has been described as a comedy-infused drama that mixes a little “Thelma & Louise” with a bit of “Breaking Bad.”

Alongside stars Hendricks, Whitman and Retta, the cast is rounded out by Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

“Good Girls” hails from Shondaland alum Jenna Bans, who created the series and will serve as executive producer with Jeannine Renshaw and Dean Parisot, who will direct the pilot. Universal Television is the studio.

Hendricks starred on “Mad Men” for its entire run. Since, she has appeared on Sundance’s “Hap and Leonard” and Comedy Central’s “Another Period.” She is repped by ICM, Link Entertainment and attorney Howard Fishman at Hirsch Wallerstein.

Christina joins “Tin Star”

Tim Roth, Christina Hendricks Confirmed as Stars of Western ‘Tin Star’

LONDON — “The Hateful Eight’s” Tim Roth and “Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks have been confirmed as the stars of Western miniseries “Tin Star,” which has been commissioned by European pay TV operator Sky. The show has been penned by Rowan Joffe and is being produced by Kudos.

“Tin Star” tells the story of Jim Worth, a former London police detective who has moved with his family to the Rocky Mountains to start a new life as a local police chief in an idyllic rural community. When his small town is overrun by migrant workers from a massive new oil refinery, the wave of drugs, prostitution and organized crime that follows them threatens to sweep away everything in its wake.

When Jim makes a stand, his act appears to prompt mysterious assassins to unleash sudden and violent retribution on him and his family; the resulting tragedy irrevocably shattering the peace they had found in this once perfect mountain idyll and transforming their remote sanctuary into a hellish and inescapable prison.

Commissioned for Sky by head of drama Anne Mensah, commissioning editor Cameron Roach and director of Sky Atlantic Zai Bennett, “Tin Star” is executive produced by Alison Jackson and Kudos CEO Diederick Santer, and produced by Matt Strevens for Kudos. International distribution is to be handled by Endemol Shine Intl. and Sky Vision.
