Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth has joined the cast of Sex and the City executive producer Darren Star's Good Christian Bitches pilot.

The ABC dramedy project is based on Kim Gatlin's 2008 novel of the same name.

Thirty-six-year-old Leslie Louise Bibb (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) will play the lead role of Amanda, a mother of two who after the death of her billionaire husband returns to her Dallas neighborhood, where she is confronted by the community's uppity wives.

Chenoweth, who starred opposite Sean Hayes in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, will play the role of Darlene, the ringleader of the group.

According to gay male entertainment website, the cast includes a closeted husband who is married to one of the gossipy wives, Cricket. But Blake Caruth's sexuality is an open secret among the women.

In the pilot script, Darlene spies Caruth holding hands with his boyfriend, Booth Becker. Casting for either gay character has yet to be announced.

The Parents Television Council has already criticized the ABC pilot, labeling its title an attack on “the world's largest faith” and an “affront to women.”
