''GCB'' is a 2011-debut American TV [[{{Dramedy}} dramedy]] set in the exclusive Dallas, Texas suburb of Highland Park. It's frequently described as a Southern ''Series/DesperateHousewives'' or a grown up MeanGirls. The show was created by Darren Star (''Series/BeverlyHills90210'', ''Series/MelrosePlace'', ''Series/SexAndTheCity'') and written by Robert Harling (''Film/SteelMagnolias''). It's somewhat based on the book ''Literature/GoodChristianBitches'' by Kim Gatlin; the show was originally going to bear that title (it still got [[TitleDrop dropped]] in the ads), and then changed to ''Good Christian Belles'' before settling on the less controversial abbreviation.
