Dougherty “Bitches” to Fox

Writer-director Michael Dougherty (TRICK R’ TREAT) is developing BITCHES for Fox, which is a described as a comedy drama about four female friends in New York who just happen to be werewolves. Hollywood Reporter informs us:

TV writing duo Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have come on board to supervise Dougherty. The two also will serve as executive producers alongside Dougherty if the project, described as a quirky urban fairy tale, goes to series.

“Bitches” continues the werewolf theme from Dougherty’s recent horror flick “Trick ‘r Treat.”

2009 is shaping up to be a big year for werewolves with the release of the Benicio del Toro-starring remake of “The Wolfman” and the “Twilight” sequel “New Moon.”

Doughterty’s previous credits include SUPERMAN RETURNS and X-2: X-MEN UNITED. Berg and Haberts recently exec produced PUSHING DAISIES.

WMA-repped Dougherty’s writing credits also include “Superman Returns” and “X2: X-Men United.”

Berg and Harberts recently served as co-exec producers on the ABC/WBTV series “Pushing Daisies.” The duo, repped by ICM and attorney Gretchen Bruggeman Rush, also created/exec produced the WB’s “Pepper Dennis.”
