Kristin Chenoweth, Annie Potts and Miriam Shor star in the new hour-long ABC soap "G.C.B" (formerly titled both "Good Christian Belles" and "Good Christian Bitches"). The series is set to debut sometime mid-season.
The show, according to an industry paper, "revolves around a former high school 'mean girl' (Leslie Bibb, 'Popular') who returns home to Dallas after her marriage ends in scandal."
Darren Star and Aaron Kaplan produce the show with Robert Harling; who penned the pilot. "G.C.B." is based on the book by Kim Gatlin.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
