GCB premiered 12 years ago today and it was just THE. MOST. FUN,” Chenoweth shared on Instagram. “We could have filmed this one forever. I miss Carlene and I miss this show. Who’s with me??”

Chenoweth also shared a quote from the show, adding, “Cleavage helps your cross hang straight.”

GCB premiered on ABC on March 4, 2012. The comedy developed by Robert Harling and produced by Darren Star was based on Kim Gatlin novel Good Christian Bitches. Chenoweth starred alongside Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, Miriam Shor, Marisol Nichols and Annie Potts.

The series centered on a recently widowed woman, played by Bibb, who moves her family to an affluent area in Dallas, Texas, where she grew up. GCB was a mid-season replacement for Pan Am and lasted only ten episodes.

Christian organizations criticized the original title of the series, Good Christian Bitches, as they believed it mocked their faith. The series would later be renamed Good Christian Belles, before landing on GCB.

In 2018, it was reported that the CW was developing a new adaptation of Good Christian Bitches inspired by Gaitlin’s book. Leila Cohan-Miccio was set to write the adaptation, which would be produced by Star, Aaron Kaplan‘s Kapital Entertainment, CBS TV Studios and ABC Studios.
