Creator Marc Cherry announced at the ABC press tour, "We're going to have the first male desperate housewives. They will move into the old Applewhite house and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher. I just decided to have them move onto the street and have as many issues as any other couple.
And Susan wants to be so politically correct and show how open-minded she is and she puts her foot in her mouth instantly and it goes downhill from there. We just started writing the episodes so I probably won't start casting for another few weeks.
"This sounds delicious! Also joining the cast next season is Dana Delaney and Nathon Fillion as her husband.
