The wait is (almost) over, Cheno-fans! ABC has announced that Kristin Chenoweth’s new TV series, GCB (formerly known as Good Christian Bitches and then Good Christian Belles), will air on Sunday evenings beginning March 4, 2012.
The midseason replacement series centers on Amanda Vaughn (played by Leslie Bibb), a recently divorced mom who moves back to her childhood home in Dallas to find herself caught in a gossip-filled social scene, of which Carlene Cockburn (Chenoweth) is certainly a part.
The show also features Annie Potts as Gigi Stopper, Jennifer Aspen as Sharon Peacham, Miriam Shor as Cricket Caruth-Reilly, Marisol Nichols as Heather Cruz, Brad Beyer as Zack Peacham, Mark Deklin as Blake Reilly and David James Elliott as Ripp Cockburn. Steel Magnolias playwright Robert Harling penned the series and executive produces along with Sex and The City’s Darren Star, Aaron Kaplan and Alan Poul, who directs.
Check out Chenoweth in action in the show’s trailer, then tune in on March 4 to see her stir things up.
