DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES creator/headwriter Marc Cherry recently spoke to a few hundred television critics in Beverly Hills to share his thoughts on the breaking news that this upcoming season of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES will be the show's final one. But when Soaps In Depth caught up with Cherry after the question and answer session, we wanted to know if there was any truth to the persistent rumors that ALL MY CHILDREN diva Susan Lucci (Erica) would be moving onto Wisteria Lane and joining the primetime soap's cast.
"I just had lunch with Susan Lucci," Cherry exclusively tells In Depth. "And I don't know that she'll be on DESPERATE, but hopefully maybe something in the future." In addition to penning the final season of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, Cherry is currently re-working his pilot, HALLELUJAH, for ABC.
