From Jenna Bans (The Family), Good Girls follows three suburban moms struggling to make ends meet who decide to rob a local grocery store.

Good Girls stars Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Mae Whitman (Parenthood), Retta (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce), Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly), and Manny Montana (Conviction).
From Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), Rise tells the story of Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor), a dedicated teacher who takes over his school’s theater department and galvanizes not only the faculty and student body but the entire town.
The series stars Rosie Perez (White Men Can’t Jump), Marley Shelton (The Lottery), Amy Forsyth (Channel Zero), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Rarmian Newton (The Family), and Ted Sutherland (Dovid Meyer).
