Actually, according to an e-mail ABC-TV publicist Erin Felentzer sent to Unfair Park a few days back, Sex and the City creator Darren Star's adaptation of Kim Gatlin's book about a divorced mother of two moving back to the Park Cities is no longer called Good Christian Bitches. Instead, she says,  "We are calling it GCB," which isn't surprising but is disappointing. And, keep in mind, that title too isn't set in stone; it'll likely change several more times between now and if/when it airs.

But whatever the title, the pilot will still shoot here -- beginning this month, matter of fact. (Word is, the tentative start date is March 21.)

Which is why word's started trickling out about who's starring -- and who isn't. According to The Hollywood Reporter last week, Christina Applegate passed (damn it); Glee's Jennifer Aspen didn't, which is how she came to be cast as one of the title characters. Last last night, two other actors were announced: the ghostbusting Annie Potts and Leslie Bibb. And, according to Deadline.com, Bibb -- one of those actors whose face you know instantly but whose name and credits you can't ever quite remember -- will play the lead character, Amanda Vaughn.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
