ABC series orders: 'Good Christian,' 'Pan Am,' 'The River'; 'Body of Proof' renewed
Next fall, ABC could look like a whole new network. Not only has the broadcaster just dumped Brothers & Sisters, V, No Ordinary Family, Detroit 1-8-7 and Off the Map, but its adding seven new drama titles.
They are: The Texas-set soap Good Christian Belles (previously titled Good Christian Bitches), the remake of the 1970s hit Charlie’s Angels, the fairy tale drama Once Upon A Time, the 1960s pilots-n-stewardesses drama Pan Am, the soap Revenge, Shonda Rhimes drama about political consultants Scandal, and the documentary-style thriller The River (that’s the one I’m looking forward to the most).
Bitches Belles, whose cast includes Kristen Chenoweth, drew controversy when first announced from conservative groups. Though the new title will likely be considered an improvement from their perspective, the story’s grown-up-Mean Girls premise could end up giving the Disney-owned network a headache since the use of “Christian” remains sarcastic.
Unfortunately… and readers of this blog knows how much this hurts… Poe is not getting picked up.
Also: Dana Delany and her Body of Proof drama will be back after being renewed.
