Michael Dougherty is Fox's wolf man.

What if Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte didn't frequent their estheticians quite as often? You might end up with Bitches, the dramedy project now in development at Fox.

Bitches, says the Reporter, revolves around four female friends in New York City whose bad time of the month is, like, seriously bad, seeing as they are all werewolves. (Damn that full moon.) This "quirky urban fairy tale" is being penned by Michael Dougherty (Trick 'R Treat, X2: X-Men United) and, should it get greenlit to series, will be exec-produced by Pushing Daisies' Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts.

Werewolves, of course, are the new vampires come the new year, which will bring us Benicio del Toro's (presumably make-up-free?) Wolfman remake and the lycanthropic Twilight sequel, New Moon.
