After months and months without any new content from networks or streamers, we're starting to get things back on track. March is going to be a big month for new and returning shows, and thankfully this one is one of them.

The Girls on the Bus premieres Thursday, March 14, 2024 on Max. Benoist is not only in the lead role, but she produces as well. The political drama was created by former New York Times journalist Amy Chozick and developer of The Vampire Diaries Julie Plec. The project is inspired by Chozick's memoir Chasing Hillary as she was a real-life political reporter who went on the road with multiple presidential candidates and Hillary Clinton for eight years . Rina Mimoun is the showrunner.

The Girls on the Bus tells the story of four female journalists who each have a different reporting style and personality, per the synopsis. They hop on a bus and join the presidential campaign trail. The show is mostly centered around journalist Sadie McCarthy (Benoist) who "romanticizes a bygone era of campaign reporting and scraps her whole life for a shot at covering a presidential candidate for a paper of record." Though the other three female journalists are her competitors, the women form a bond and get a "front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town - the battle for the White House."

In speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Chozick also teased that the story is not just about politics. There's also intrigue, romance, and more. Here's what she said to the outlet:

"Things are really dark right now, in politics, in media, whether it's layoffs or distrust in media and I think our show is an antidote, an escape. There's a lot of hope and heart in it."
