Despite their differences, the women become a found family with a front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town: the battle for the White House.

Foley will play a little-known mayor from Kansas who has joined the presidential race.

The Girls On The Bus, which comes from writers and executive producers Amy Chozick and Julie Plec, is. inspired by a chapter in Chozick’s book Chasing Hillary. Benoist serves as a producer on the series, which is also exec produced by showrunner Rina Mimoun, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
