About the Show

GCB (formerly titled Good Christian Bitches then Good Christian Belles) is an American comedy-drama television series developed by Robert Harling, produced by Darren Star and based on the "semi-autobiographical" novel Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin, about a recently widowed woman who moves her family back to the upscale Dallas, Texas, neighbourhood where she grew up.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 4 March to 6 May, 2012. There are 10 hour-long episodes in one season.

GCB premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Saturday 28 July 2012, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Based on the book Good Christian Bitches, GCB is a drama that begs the question: can you go back home to a place where no one seems to have grown up?

When former mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) moves back to Dallas 18 years after high school, former unpopular teen-turned-diva-of-Dallas Carlene Cockburn (Kristin Chenoweth) gets a major dose of PTSD.

To top it off, Amanda's living across the street from the Cockburns with her feisty mother Gigi Stopper (Annie Potts). Amanda has changed for the morally better but Carlene and her other victims - the GCBs - have their doubts.

The GCBs now rule the school that is Dallas society and are about to settle the score with Amanda Vaughn.

The other fabulous GCBs include the shrewd, distinguished CEO Cricket (Miriam Shor); the endearing, consummate housewife and mother, Sharon (Jennifer Aspen); and the self-made, always-single-but-on-the-prowl Heather (Marisol Nichols).

Behind every great GCB (except Heather, of course), is a great husband, which includes Carlene's Ripp (David James Elliot), a devoted hunk with a secret or two; Cricket's Blake (Mark Deklin), her gorgeously fabulous better half; and Sharon's Zack (Brad Beyer), a good-time guy and former pro athlete.

Oh, let the games begin...
