Kristin Chenoweth has been cast in ABC's Good Christian Bitches, a new dramedy from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show follows a woman (Leslie Bibb) who returns to her Dallas neighborhood after the breakup of her marriage to become the focus of salacious gossip from the community's churchgoing wives, one of whom will be played by Chenoweth.

The Parents Television Council has already criticized the pilot, stating that ABC's decision to pick it up is "not only an affront to women, it blatantly attacks the world's largest faith."

The PTC also took issue with the title, which will likely change if the show is picked up for ABC's fall schedule, saying "The 'b-word' is toxic and is used to degrade, abuse, harass, bully and humiliate women. And the 'Christian' element only adds insult to injury."

The pilot comes with one of television's gayest pedigrees. Robert Harling, playwright of Steel Magnolias and screenwriter of The First Wives Club and Soapdish, will serve as writer and executive producer. Six Feet Under's Alan Poul will direct the pilot.
