(HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) — No matter how ABC’s new series GCB portrays Christian women in Dallas, it seems its detractors will never really be able to get over its original working title taken from Kim Gatlin’s novel, Good Christian Bitches.
Since its premiere, New York City councilman Peter Vallone has called for a boycott. And recently, even Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has joined in condemning the series for mostly its already abandoned title.
“There is nothing mean spirited in what we have done here,” Jennifer Aspen, who plays Sharon, tells the Hollywood Reporter. “And there is not a single woman and not a writer on this show that doesn’t love this world, understand it and has been a part of it in one way or another. I know the difference between mean spirited comedy and just character driven comedy. That’s what this is.”
