Good Christian Bitches is coming to ABC

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that Robert Wilonsky at the Dallas Observer reports that Parkie socialite, Kim Gatlin (former wife of Rudy Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers)  has had her book, Good Christian Bitches, optioned by Darren Star -- creator and exec producer of, among others, Sex and the City and Melrose Place.

"The project, referred to by some as "Desperate Housewives in Dallas," centers on Amanda Vaughn, a recently divorced mother of two who, to get a fresh start, moves back to the affluent Dallas neighborhood where she grew where she finds herself in the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud."

UPDATE!!!

Alan Peppard, society columnist for the DMN is reporting that last week, after much interest from the big networks, ABC signed on the dotted line with Star to create a TV series for their Fall 2011 line-up.

You may soon see screenwriter Robert Harling (The First Wives Club, Steel Magnolias) skulking around Highland Park Village looking for rich women toting Bibles and bad attitudes.  Harling has been tasked with scripting the pilot and serving as the show's head writer. So expect him to be here shortly in search of the original GCBs.

Got any casting recommendations for Harling?
