Hollywood legend and Broadway vet Julia Roberts has agreed to produce PARANORMAL HOUSEWIVES, an original series for Lifetime, Deadline reported this afternoon. Roberts will produce alongside Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, her longtime friend and collaborator.
PARANORMAL HOUSEWIVES is written and executive produced by MISS CONGENIALITY's Katie Ford. The project follows a group of female paranormal investigators - aptly calling themselves 'The Paranormal Housewives.' Inspired by a real group of investigators from California, the team formed in 2010, featuring locals Erin Potter, Kirsten Thorne, and Marsha Covert-Garcia. The trio will consult on the series.
Roberts is quickly becoming an in-demand TV producer - as HOUSEWIVES is her second sale of the season. Roberts and Goldsmith-Thomas have also partnered with ABC to bring the workplace comedy TAMING OF THE SHREW to the air.
No casting or production date has been announced by the network.
