Characters:

Sheree Hollinger: portrayed at 44, 49, 54 and 77 years old
The spunky team captain desperately tries to maintain her organized and "perfect" life. Her tendency to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy. She’s the eternal tomboy, a health nut and an all-American mom who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina

 

Lexie Richards: portrayed at 44, 49, 54 and 77 years old
Pampered and outspoken, determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. A true Southern belle who lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and is the vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of four-star hotels.  Enjoys being married — over and over and over again.

 

Jeri Neal McFeeley: portrayed at 44, 49, 54 and 77 years old
The ditzy ray of sunshine of the group. Sweet, eager to please.  She’s perky and naïve and always sees the positive side of everything.  Experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.

 

Dinah Grayson: portrayed at 44, 49, 54 years old
The wisecracking cynic of the group, armed with a dry martini and an even drier sense of humor, she has fought her way to the top and relished the view.  She has been an overachiever, a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.

 

Vernadette Simms: portrayed at 44, 49, 54 and 77 years old
A hard luck case if there ever was one.  Self-deprecating and acerbic by necessity.  Acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life and faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of these lifelong friends.
