GCB The Complete First Season

The buzz is huge over the newest TV series by Darren Star, GCB The Complete First Season. People are saying is a close {if not better} replacement for those that adored and miss Sex and the City. Being a fan of SATC, I’m was willing to give this show a shot yet sadly I forgot to record any episodes and now the show has been cancelled. Darn! Yet, luckily the first season has been released onto DVD, so it’s not too late to watch what others raved about.

Synopsis: From Darren Star, creator of ‘Sex And The City,’ and Robert Harling, writer of ‘Steel Magnolias,’ comes a deliciously fun, wicked new drama that shows a girl can go home again…butonly if she’s ready to face the sins of her past. Back in high school, original mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) mercilessly tormented her less attractive classmates. Twenty years later, after her hubby is busted for a Ponzi scheme – and meets his maker in a particularly scandalous way – a disgraced Amanda is back in Dallas to start life anew under her mother’s (Annie Potts) palatial roof. But will the good women of her hometown welcome her with open arms or dole out some kick-ass karmic payback? Let’s just say, hell hath no fury like the cosmetically enhanced!

Released on June 12 onto DVD and in stores now, this show stars: Leslie Bibb {“Iron Man”}, Kristin Chenoweth {“Pushing Daisies”}, Annie Potts {“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Joan of Arcadia”}, Jennifer Aspen {“Rodney”}, Miriam Shor {“Swingtown,” “Damages”} and many more.
