New NBC dramas Good Girls and Rise get midseason premiere dates
NBC has announced the mid-season premiere dates for two of its most hotly anticipated new shows — Good Girls and Rise.
Good Girls, which follows three suburban moms dealing with the fallout from robbing the local grocery store, will premiere on Monday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. immediately after the debut of the spring cycle of The Voice. Created by Jenna Bans and described as Breaking Bad meets Thelma and Louise, the show stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, and more.
From Friday Night Lights creator Jason Katims, Rise follows Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) as he takes over his local struggling high school drama department and inspires a group of students. Based on a true story, the show stars a gaggle of fresh faces including Moana’s Auli’i Cravalho and has been described as doing for high school drama what Friday Night Lights did for high school football.
Rise, also from Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller, will begin with a special preview episode following the season finale of This is Us on Tuesday, March 13 at 10 p.m. It will move to its regular 9 p.m. time slot the following week, March 20.
