McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, the self-proclaimed wealthiest woman in America. Even her Trump-ian wealth can’t buy her friends, though, which is why in the new red-band trailer for the comedy, Michelle’s former mentor, played by Kathy Bates, calls her ex-protege the nastiest things she can think of — during an on-air interview, no less.
“The Boss” finds Michelle moving in with her beaten-down subordinate (Kristen Bell) after a short stint in prison for insider trading. Her reputation in shreds but her hyper-confidence intact, Michelle’s just waiting to make her entrepreneurial comeback. She spots an opportunity hawking brownies among the local Girl Scouts group — though not if a local PTA mom (Annie Mumolo) and a rival sweets-selling group has anything to say about it. (Michelle definitely has lots of foul, vulgar things to say about it.)
