Shadow and Act has confirmed that the NBC pilot Dangerous Moms has rounded out its cast, with three more stars joining Shanola Hampton and Dascha Polanco.
Based on the Spanish series Señoras del (h)Ampa, it is described as “an off-center, dark dramedy about four diverse mothers who accidentally kill the queen bee of their school’s PTA during the demonstration of a new high-end food processor. The story becomes a female anthem about friendship and family as it tells the story of one completely unprepared group of women who must juggle their everyday lives while their worlds are turned upside down.”
Hopkins wiill play Fatima. The highly spiritual Fatima lives in and works as a manager at one of Pia’s (Polanco) buildings, where she takes care of her own grandson. She is also a full-time embalmer at a popular funeral home.

Marano will play the role of Rebecca “Becki” Rossi. Rebecca is a bubbly, pregnant newlywed, with no filter. She knows Fatima, Chloe, and Monique from the PTA, but after a series of crazy events, they become unsuspecting friends.
