"GCB" showNews that Hollywood execs are reviving a show that is outrageously offensive to Christians has caught the attention of a TV watchdog.

OneMillionMoms protested loudly over ABC’s “Good Christian [Expletive],” which aired for only one season amid a tidal wave of criticism, only to learn the cable network CW has picked up the series.

"They (Hollywood) just keep coming back to this anti-Christian program,” laments Cole.

The original ABC show centered on a hated main character returning to a Dallas suburb, where her former high school classmates plot against her. Over-the-top church life a key plot of the show, and a not-safe-for-children trailer depicts the show's main characters dropping sexual innuendos in a church setting. 

Under pressure over the show's title, ABC changed the title to "Good Christian Belles" and later "GCB."

The new show targets CW’s teen audience, Cole says, with younger characters at a private Christian school where the atheist daughter of a local minister tangles with three popular girls.

“And there's a lot of drama and sin, revenge and scheming, which is over the top,” Cole says, “and the show portrays Christians in a negative light."
