The still unnamed “Southern Gothic Soap Opera” program is set to air on ABC and being developed by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry. As reported previously by TVLine, Syfy Haven alum Emily Rose has been placed in the role of Vonda Jean, the town’s coroner and former beauty pageant contestant. Also joining the cast are Jack Coleman (Heroes), Amanda Detmer (Necessary Roughness), Ryan McPartlin (Chuck), Ben Esler (Hell on Wheels), Natalie Hall (All My Children), and Saidah Ekulona (Impastor).
