Here’s the description:

Good girlfriends can get you through anything in life – especially during the quarantine. With the help of a little tech and a lot of sisterhood, each week different female celebrity friends will hold a virtual chat room “check in” — spilling the tea about their relationships, their families, sharing new recipes, and reminding us that we are truly all in this together. The six-episode series is produced by Critical Content.
