Christina HendricksChristina Hendricks is returning to TV in a big way: The "Mad Men" alum is replacing "Episodes"star Kathleen Rose Perkins in the upcoming NBC drama "Good Girls," according to THR.

The show is about three suburban moms (Hendricks, Retta of "Parks and Recreation," and Mae Whitman from "Parenthood"), who decide to make ends meet by robbing a local supermarket. Naturally, things don't go as planned.

Per the casting notice when Perkins landed the role, the character, Beth, is the ringleader of the group who is spurred to act after learning of her husband's affair. After filming the pilot, Perkins left the show when it was picked up in May.

The series (which is not to be confused with the similarly named Amazon series "Good Girls Revolt"), is from Jenna Bans, who was a producer on "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy." Look for it on NBC in early 2018.

Although Hendricks has appeared on Sundance series "Hap and Leonard" and Comedy Central's "Another Period" since "Mad Men" wrapped in 2015, this will be her first regular TV role since playing iconic secretary Joan Holloway.
