Sara Bareilles & Renee Elise Goldsberry Kick Off Filming for 'Girls5Eva' Comedy Series with Tina Fey!

Sara Bareilles and Renee Elise Goldsberry share a hug while filming a scene for their upcoming comedy series Girls5Eva on Tuesday (October 20) in New York City.

The upcoming series is going to stream on the Peacock streaming service and it is being executive produced by Tina Fey, among others. She was spotted on set alongside the pilot’s director Kat Coiro.

In Girls5Eva, “when a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90’s gets sampled by a young rapper, its members reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot.”

Sara is playing “Dawn, a former member of Girls5eva, who is now a bit restless in life managing her family’s small Italian restaurant in Queens. When the opportunity arises, Dawn reluctantly gets the band back together for a Girls5eva reunion and it might just be exactly what she needed.”

Renee is starring as “Wickie, the glamorous, big-voiced, star of the group back in the day. Wickie’s solo career hit a ditch, but she’s determined to use this new opportunity to retake her rightful place as pop royalty.”

In the scene, it looks like Wickie arrived at Dawn’s apartment with her suitcase in tow.

Also starring in the series are Busy Philipps, Paula Pell, and Ashley Park!

'Mean Girls' Cast Reunites to Encourage People to Vote - Watch the Reunion!

The cast of Mean Girls reunited for a special reason and you can watch the full video here!

Katie Couric brought the entire cast together after reaching her goal of getting 5,000 people to register to vote as part of HeadCount’s Good to Vote campaign.

Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Franzese, Jonathan Bennett, Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, and Rajiv Surendra all participated in the reunion. Rachel McAdams, who is currently pregnant, was unable to attend the reunion, but she did a solo Zoom call with Katie that was included.

Amanda had to lay down during the call as she just gave birth to her second child, which Katie noted at the beginning.

Tina revealed that she had to change lines in the movie to get a PG-13 rating. She said, “We felt it was important to get that PG-13 so I had to keep peeling that away. I remember one of the weird ones, we couldn’t say… in the cafeteria Jason Weems says ‘is your cherry popped?’ and they wouldn’t let us say it. I do think because it was girls and not boys MPAA were like ‘no,’ they couldn’t handle it. So we had to change ‘is your cherry popped’ to a weird audio replacement of ‘is your muffin buttered,’ which means nothing.”

Take a look back at what the cast looked like in 2004 at the red carpet premiere of the movie!

Tina Fey Tests Mariah Carey's 'Mean Girls' Knowledge! - Watch (Video)

In the video, Mariah shows off a piece of jewelry to prove how much she loves the movie.

“Could you tell by anything that I’m wearing that I might have seen the movie once or twice? My necklace is an ‘M’ version of the ‘R’ that Regina and the ‘C’ that Cady have,” Mariah explained.

“When the movie was first released, I watched it literally every night. And then recently, my daughter — who’s technically too young — she’s obsessed with it.”

When they discussed “Jingle Bell Rock” in the film, the singer said she was disappointed “All I Want for Christmas Is You” wasn’t used instead.

“We’re gonna make another movie of it, so if you want to license us that song for the movie and also be in the movie, just say nothing now and we’ll consider it legally binding. Just laugh and it’ll be legally binding,” Tina joked.

Tina Fey Issues Statement After '30 Rock' Blackface Episodes Are Pulled

NBC has pulled a total of four episodes of 30 Rock from streaming and syndication.

The decision to pull them from air was a request by co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

“As we strive to do the work and do better in regards to race in America, we believe that these episodes featuring actors in race-changing makeup are best taken out of circulation,” Tina shared in a statement about the request, via TV Line.

She continued, “I understand now that ‘intent’ is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving kid needs to stumble on these tropes and be stung by their ugliness. I thank NBCUniversal for honoring this request.”

Season 3’s “Believe in the Stars” and Season 5’s “Christmas Attack Zone,” join Season 5’s “Live Show” and Season 6’s “Live From Studio H”.

The last of the episodes pulled features guest star Jon Hamm donning blackface for a spoof of the racist radio and TV program Amos ‘n’ Andy.

Just last week, it was announced that 30 Rock will returning for an hour-long special. Get the details about it here…
