Kristin Chenoweth Is Now Coming to Town As One of ABC's Good Christian Bitches

ABC's set to start shooting that Good Christian Bitches pilot around town on Monday, last we heard, with Carley Bobby as Amanda Vaughn, the divorced mother of two moving back to the Park Cities with her tail tucked. Late last night, ABC announced it's added a new castmate to Sex and the City creator Darren Star's adaptation of Kim Gatlin's book: Kristin Chenoweth, the Broadway star-turned-West Wing'er better known for two episodes of Glee than 22 episodes of Pushing Daisies, also on ABC.

Per Entertainment Weekly, Chenoweth will play Darlene, one of the GCBs. Also, says the magazine, this is how ABC's now officially pitching the series:
"This primetime drama ... asks the questions -- is it possible to start over in a town that thinks they already know you? Amanda, once the ultimate mean girl in high school, returns home to Dallas after her marriage ends in scandal. Humbled, Amanda is nothing like the girl she once was, but as her old classmates reacquaint themselves with the new Amanda, will these 'good Christian bitches' give her a second chance or is this their shot to seek revenge?"
ABC can't change the title now, can it? And, Jack, can I borrow your copy?

Suddenly, a good reason for me to hope this makes it on the schedule other than general support of television shows being filmed in the Metroplex.

What a terrible title for what sounds like a good show. How will people explain THAT title to their kids?

Love her voice. Can't wait to hear it with a "country-fried" accent.

Chenoweth is a Broadway diva and is a great choice. As for my book, it has been laminated. A big tip of the hat to Kim Gatlin as it is near impossible for a local writer to reach this point and remain local.

Thanks to the interweb & cell phones, they already know everything. If you aren't home schooling your kids in a remote Amish enclave BFE, I'm pretty sure they'll explain it to you.

The accent shouldn't be difficult for her. She went to college in Oklahoma City.
