Lifetime Looks to Correct Desperate Error
Lifetime, who reportedly passed on Desperate Housewives when it was first shopped, will reportedly acquire repeats of the series.
Effective immedately upon finalization of the deal, the ABC blockbuster drama will re-air on the chick channel within a few days of its Sunday night airing. In addition, it will run five nights a week beginning in 2008.
Much has been made about the network's gaffe in passing on the show, but honestly- would it have been as big a hit on Lifetime? Would they have been able to get the same caliber talent? Somehow I suspect it wouldn't work as well with Delta Burke, Lisa Rinna and Meredith Baxter in the leading roles.
