Somewhere under a pile of books in the office is a copy of Park Cities author Kim Gatlin's Good Christian Bitches
, which I may finally have to read based upon this Deadline Hollywood exclusive
: Darren Star -- creator and exec producer of, among others, Sex and the City
and Melrose Place
-- has ABC, NBC and CBS calling dibs on his latest series, an adaptation of Gatlin's book being penned by First Wives Club
scribe Robert Harling
. Reports Nellie Andreeva:
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.
Starring Bradley Whitford. Though I may be wrong about that.
