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.”

So, would you want to see a Desperate Housewives revival somewhere down the line, or glad that it seems done for good? Comment below.

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

Momo, I agree about revivals and even more about REMAKES and films adapted for Broadway. If u want a good laugh, check out PLAYBILL.com for the latest spate: MRS. DOUBTFIRE, the musical; PRINCESS DIANA, the musical; BRITNEY SPEARS the musical….and on and on. Does no one have any new ideas or are producers just “playing it really safe”? KING KONG the MUSICAL? I’d rather watch the original 1933 classic. But that’s me.

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)

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
