‘Smart, funny, and just nostalgic enough, Girls5eva’s intelligent insights are brought to brilliant life by its talented quartet, whose individual gifts come together to make sweet comedic harmony,’ the website’s critical consensus said.

Busy shared a heartfelt post earlier this year detailing how near-and-dear the project became as she formed friendships with the cast and crew. 

‘I tell people I ‘quit’ acting because I couldn’t deal with the heartbreak -it just wasn’t worth it for me anymore,’ she wrote. ‘But then Tina Fey called and said, ‘Hey! wanna stay in NYC and do this show GIRLS5EVA with us?’ Oh my god. OBVIOUSLY YES. 

‘What I CAN tell you is that if even HALF of the joy that we all had making it translates to your screens, you will be obsessed. AND we did all 8 episodes in the middle (end?) of this pandemic- being tested everyday, having mandatory shorter work hours, doing table reads over zoom, wearing masks and shields and redoing our damn lipstick four thousand times a day.’

She detailed the arduous testing process and how she’s been ‘so so lucky’ in her career, but this role really ‘takes the cake.’ 

‘So all I have to say is that I’m eternally grateful to have been able to have had this JOY with these incredible people making this insanity called Girls5eva in this- the strangest time.’
