‘Good Christian Bitches’ Reboot in the Works at The CW

Novel by Kim Gatlin was previously adapted into an ABC dramedy starring Kristin Chenoweth

The CW is taking another shot at “Good Christian Bitches,” looking to adapt the Kim Gatlin novel for television once again, six years after ABC’s short-lived adaption titled “GCB.”

Leila Cohan-Miccio will serve as a writer and executive producer on the show, which is in development at the network. Darren Star and Aaron Kaplan are also back on board to executive produce.

Described as a “semi-autobiographical” story about the clergy and parishioners of a Texas church, “Good Christian Bitches” was first adapted into an ABC dramedy, starring Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, Miriam Shor, Marisol Nichols and Annie Potts.

Under pressure from Christian groups, the network tamed down the title from “Good Christian Bitches” to “GCB” before the show premiered in May 2012. After a 10-episode run, the show was canceled due to unimpressive ratings.

CBS Television Studios will produce the reboot for The CW alongside original studio ABC Studios, with Darren Star Productions and Kapital Entertainment also back on board. Kapital’s Dana Honor will also serve as executive producer.

This is just the latest TV reboot in the works at The CW. The network has also put into development new iterations of “The L.A. Complex” and “The 4400,” in addition to the “Charmed” and “Roswell” reboots that made it to air this season.
