Get ready to see suburban Michigan moms gone wild. Well, sort of. Tonight NBC's Good Girls premieres, a series following three moms-turned-bank robbers after deciding they're ready to stick up for themselves.

Get it? Stick up? Sorry, mom joke.

Starring Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Another Period), Retta (Parks and Recreation, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce), Mae Whitman (Parenthood, Arrested Development), and Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly), the show follows three suburban moms who are "tired of trying to make ends meet" and decide to rob a grocery store.

Anyone else getting Eminem "Guilty Conscience" vibes from this plot description?

In the opening episode, the trio hits a lick on a grocery store vault and soon discovers they've gotten more than they bargained for. The series is being praised for its "female-empowerment" in the wake of the #MeToo movement, and is described as a cross between  and Big Little Lies. It also features Matthew Lillard, who you might remember from his memorable performance in 2000s-era masterpiece She's All That.

Tune in to NBC at 10 p.m. EST [following your mom's favorite show, The Voice] to find out the answer to the big question:

Do they rob a Meijer or a Kroger?
