ABC pilot GOOD CHRISTIAN BITCHES was picked up last week but renamed GOOD CHRISTIAN BELLES. Now the network has decided to change the name of its newest primetime soap again--this time to G.C.B.

Here's how ABC described the show last week at the upfronts:

The soap returns to Dallas in this wicked new drama that shows that you can go home again... but only if you’re ready to face the sins of your past.

Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb), once the ultimate high school "mean girl," is forced to return home in disgrace after her marriage ends in scandal. Amanda is nothing like the girl she was 20 years ago, but as her old classmates reacquaint themselves with the new Amanda, will her home town welcome her with open arms or seek revenge? No one in this town is a saint, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a heart. As Amanda and her teenage kids try to adjust to their new lives, the ladies from her past alternate between sympathy and scheming.

GOOD CHRISTIAN BELLES stars Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) as Amanda Vaughn, Kristin Chenoweth (PUSHING DAISIES) as Carlene Cockburn, Annie Potts (LAW & ORDER: SVU, JOAN OF ARCADIA) as Gigi Stopper, Jennifer Aspen (Rodney) as Sharon Peacham, Miriam Shor (SWINGTOWN, DAMAGES) as Cricket Caruth-Reilly, Marisol Nichols (24) as Heather Cruz, Brad Beyer (JERICHO) as Zack Peacham, Mark Deklin (LONE STAR) as Blake Reilly and David James Elliott (JAG) as Ripp Cockburn.

Based on Kim Gatlin’s hit book, "Good Christian Bitches," GOOD CHRISTIAN BELLES is executive-produced by Darren Star (SEX AND THE CITY), Robert Harling (Steel Magnolias) and Aaron Kaplan. The pilot is written by Robert Harling and executive-produced and directed by Alan Poul. Good Christian Belles is produced by ABC Studios.

What do you think of the new title?

  2. The new title sucks. I could understand changing "Bitches" to "Belles" - even though "Good Christian Bitches" is a far more interesting title. But "G.C.B." tells me nothing about the show.
