Faith, Media & Culture

ABC announces its fall schedule next Tuesday. Here’s a list of what’s under consideration as compiled by The Wrap.

Dramas
Charlie’s Angels
A remake of the ’70’s pop classic with Robert Wagner providing the voice of Charlie.

Damage Control
A P.R. spin doctor tries to save her clients from bad press.

Grace
Described as a “dysfunctional family drama set in the world of dance.”

Good Christian Bitches
Set in Dallas, it’s about a former high school “mean girl” who returns to town after her marriage ends amidst a scandal. The question is will the  “Good Christian Bitches” of the title  give her a second chance or seek revenge?  The theme actually doesn’t sound bad. The title sucks.

Hallelujah
In a small small Tennessee named Hallelujah, a stranger arrives who may restore desperately- needed faith to its citizens. Episodes reportedly will include songs sung performed bya a gospel choir which will serve as a sort of Greek chorus. A faith-themed Glee? We shall see.
