Philipps is joining Sara Bareilles and Renée Elise Goldsberry on the Tina Fey comedy about a 1990s one-hit-wonder girl group who reunites after a young rapper makes their music relevant again by sampling their music. According to Variety, "Philipps will play the role of Summer, the most bubbly, but least talented member of the group. Summer is now a Real Housewives reject in yoga pants living in a New Jersey McMansion." Girls5eva reunites Philipps with Fey, who produced her canceled E! talk show Busy Tonight.
