A Desperate Housewives Spin-Off In The Works?


Marc Cherry just can’t get enough of the old broads!

Lily Tomlin and Kathryn Joosten, who play outrageous and meddling sisters Roberta and Karen McCluskey on Desperate Housewives, are in negotiations for their own series with ABC, according to reports.

Both actresses, both about to turn 70 this year, would star in a very Golden Girls-esque type show, and execs are hoping DH creator/exec producer Marc will head the production.

A source says: “Cherry clearly knows how to write for these two actresses. And we would love to have him involved.”

We don’t know if this could match the brilliance of Golden Girls, but it still could be good. They could swap stories about being the President’s bitch.

What do U think?
