Pilot News: Chenoweth Joins ABC's Bitches
Based on the book of the same name and exec-produced by Darren Starr (Sex and the City), GCB centers on Amanda (Popular‘s Leslie Bibb), a recently divorced mom of two who moves back to the affluent Texas neighborhood where she grew up to find herself immersed in the world of of gossip, Botox and duplicity.
An alum of such series as Pushing Daisies and a recurring guest star on Glee, the Oklahoma-born Chenoweth will play Darlene, the GCBs’ queen bee — a role that hopefully requires the Tony winner to occasionally do some singing.
Besides Bibb, the other series regulars are Jennifer Aspen (Party of Five), Miriam Shor (Swingtown), Marisol Nichols (24) and Annie Potts (Designing Women).
And yes, the Parents Television Council has already voiced their complaint with the title. But I’ll be darned if I’m typing out B*!¢#e$.
