The man who brought us Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids will next shine his spotlight on the most cunning females of all: American cheerleaders.
Marc Cherry is teaming up with Under the Dome showrunner Neal Baer for a CW drama described as “Heathers meets Alias,” according to our sister site Deadline. Titled Cheerleader Death Squad, the thriller follows a CIA agent-turned-teacher who transforms select students at his elite Washington, D.C., high school into spies.
The script is being co-written by Cherry, Baer and Dan Truly (Blue Bloods). All three will executive-produce, along with Sabrina Wind (Devious Maids).
