Variety, ABC has greenlit a pilot for a U.S. adaptation of the U.K. hit
Footballers' Wives, and even has
Bryan Singer - whose last TV pilot was
House - loosely attached to direct.
In its American incarnation, Wives will be set in the world of pro football rather than that "other" football, soccer, yet promises to retain its over-the-top frothiness. Also in the U.S. version: more-conspicuous dental hygiene.
