Ryan Michelle Bathe has been added to the cast of the upcoming remake of The First Wives Club, the 1996 film that famously starred Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton chronicling their lives after their marriages fall apart.
Starring alongside Jill Scott and Comedian Michelle Buteau, Bathe, who is famously married to Academy Award-winning actor Sterling K. Brown, will reportedly portray “a confident, type-A attorney with impeccable style and not a single of strand of hair out of place. She was on track to make partner but sidestepped her career to advance her husband’s political ambitions and raise their two kids. When a crisis reunites her with her best friends from college, she is able to translate her kick-ass courtroom skills to help them reclaim their independence and rekindle the camaraderie (and fun) of their college glory days.”
The 10-episode series, produced by Girls Trip co-writer Tracey Oliver, starts filming this fall in New York.
