Don’t Count On A ‘Desperate Housewives’ Revival Reveals Creator, Marc Cherry

Currently touting his latest show, Why Women Kill, set to premiere on CBS’ All Access streaming platform, Marc Cherry expressed at today’s CBS TCA Summer Press Tour that those hoping for a revival of his ABC sudsy series, Desperate Housewives (2004-2012) , should probably think again.

And while many may think it’s partly because one of its main stars, Felicity Huffman is embroiled in legal trouble over the college admissions scandal she was a part of and plead guilty to, it’s more about the time we are in, and the number of episodes he wrote, and the freedom being on a streaming platform instead of network TV, creatively affords him.

Cherry told Deadline,  “I did 180 episodes of Desperate Housewives, unlike a Sex and the City,which was on cable and didn’t do as many. I feel like I’ve done that, and in a weird way, I found a new way to do it because so many of themes that I get to deal with are on this show.”

In Cherry’s new series, Why Women Kill, it tells the story of three different women in three different decades and a murder that is a woven into the mix. Addressing reporters Cherry added  “It’s streaming and I do 10 episodes and it’s over.  The thing I went through with Desperate Housewive that was so difficult was cliffhangers. ‘OK, I got to do a cliffhanger every year and their lives have to change completely’ — and, oh, God, that’s so hard.”’

There was more intriguing tidbits for Wisteria Lane fans, Cherry revealed that he had planned an abortion storyline for a new character on ‘Housewives’, but ABC nixed it.  Marc stated: “I was not allowed to do an abortion storyline, and I’ve seen many people do it — and on ABC, interestingly enough.”

I don’t need a revival. Not everything needs to be revived. Enjoy the original. You can’t always go home again.

Why so many “reboots”?

Don’t get me wrong, anything that involves any sort of actual talent is a better option than so-called “reality” dragonshit. But isn’t there a single writer in Hollywood who can write something actually NEW??

Whose soul do I need to buy to make this happen?

(and by “this” I don’t mean a reboot of Desperate Housewives. Maybe watched two episodes of it the whole time it was on the air. Indifferent about whether or not it ever returns)

Revival would be great

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
