Carla Gugino has been cast in a series regular role in the new HBO Max series “The Girls on the Bus,” as reported by Variety. Gugino is the newest member of the cast, joining actors like Melissa Benoist, Natasha Behnam, Christina Elmore, and Brandon Scott who were previously revealed. Along with Sarah Schechter and Greg Berlanti, Rina Mimoun, the series’ creator, also serves as executive producer. As the show moves further along in the production process, more details will probably become available.
The show revolves around Sadie McCarthy (Benoist), a journalist who abandons everything in her life in an effort to cover the forthcoming presidential campaign, according to the synopsis, despite the fact that very little information about the series has been made public. She makes friends with three rivals, Lola, Kimberlyn, and Grace, as they receive a close-up view of the fight for the White House in her effort to cover this. Grace Gordon Greene, a seasoned reporter who becomes Sadie’s companion and mentor in the series, will be played by Gugino. Lola and Kimberlyn will be portrayed by Behnam and Elmore, respectively. The Girls on the Bus may be a fascinating series for viewers to watch when it premieres because of the intriguing notion at its core.
The book Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling, by Amy Chozick, which details the ten-year odyssey of Hilary Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016 will serve as the source of inspiration for the series. Along with Julie Plec, Chozick will contribute as a writer and an executive producer for the show. Gugino will also appear in the Netflix horror miniseries The Fall of the House of Usher, which is based on an Edgar Allen Poe novel, in addition to The Girls on the Bus.
Gugino will also appear in Leopard Skin, an AGC Television crime thriller television series, and Lisa Frankenstein, an upcoming horror comedy movie that will mark Zelda Williams’ directing debut. Fans of Gugino’s work have a lot to look forward to over the next few years with a number of upcoming projects. No date has been specified for the publication of The Girls on the Bus because the series is currently in the early stages of production.
