STATUS: previously in development (2005-2006 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) Not all housewives are desperate. Brooke Benning takes immense pleasure in her perfect home, beautiful family and well-ordered life. Her one guilty pleasure is keeping tabs on her neighbors...but she's not spying, she's being vigilant. At the other end of the neighborhood is Brooke's polar opposite, Dana Bond. Dana's a harried, somewhat cynical single mom trying to make a living as a PI, so housework is simply not a priority. But when Brooke meets Dana, they quickly realize that their opposing strengths make them an excellent team. While Dana is an ex-cop, Brooke has learned all she knows about private investigation by watching detective shows and movies. Together they discover what the women of Wisteria Lane already know: there are a lot of secrets in the suburbs.
