ABC's 'Football Wives' Still Alive
The show, an adaptation of the British hit "Footballers Wives," attracted a fair amount of buzz during pilot season, but ABC chose not to make the show one of its 11 series orders for the 2007-08 season. Now, though, the network may be reconsidering its position.
ABC Studios, which produced the pilot, has extended its options on the show's cast, according to
Marco Pennette ("Ugly Betty," "Crumbs") wrote the pilot, transplanting the high-camp British soap about the wives of professional soccer players in England to American football.
Even if ABC does ultimately decide to pass on "Football Wives," the HR says it may find a life elsewhere.
