While the exact release date has yet to be announced, TVLine has reported that The Girls on the Bus — starring Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist — will premiere on Max this March.

The upcoming political dramedy is inspired by Amy Chozick’s 2018 novel “Chasing Hillary.” The television show will be based on one of the book’s chapters, chronicling Chozick’s time covering Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign in 2016. Benoist’s involvement in the show was announced back in 2022.

Per the show’s official logline (via TVLine), The Girls on the Bus follows journalist Sadie McCarthy (Benoist), “who romanticizes the original ‘Boys on the Bus’ and who scrapped her whole life for her own shot at covering a presidential campaign for the paper of record. Sadie hits the trail and eventually bonds with three female competitors. Despite their differences, these women become a found family with a front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town: the battle for the White House.”

The Girls on the Bus has been in development for quite a while. The CW picked up the show after it was originally ordered by Netflix in 2019, but neither of them was able to move The Girls on the Bus forward. A few months later, the planned series eventually landed at Max. Now, seemingly without taking any further streaming routes, the show officially receives a release update, although the exact date has not yet been announced.

Who else will star in The Girls on the Bus?

Developed and executive produced by Julie Plec and Chozick, the rest of the stars attached to the series are Carla Gugino (The Fall of the House of Usher), Natasha Behnam (Magic Carpet Rides), Christina Elmore (Insecure), and Brandon Scott (13 Reasons Why), with Scott Foley (Whiskey Cavalier), Tala Ashe (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and Griffin Dunne (An American Werewolf in London) starring in recurring roles.
