BAIT AND SWITCH
Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry is teaming with Don Mancini (creator of the Chucky films) to develop an hourlong suspense drama for ABC titled Kill/Switch. Although details of the show are hard to come by, Variety says it will feature a supernatural element and, quite possibly, a lead female character who's lifeless. (Paging Elisabeth Rohm....) In other development news, 24 masterminds Bob Cochran and Joel Surnow have sold a drama pilot to Fox that's being billed as a modern-day L.A. Confidential.
