Pilot Season: Leslie Bibb from 'Iron Man 2,' Jennifer Ehle from 'The King's Speech' and 'Good Christian Bitches'

Pilot Season: Leslie Bibb from 'Iron Man 2,' Jennifer Ehle from 'The King's Speech' and 'Good Christian Bitches' Casting calls are closed for two upcoming network pilots.

"The League" and "Iron Man 2" actress Leslie Bibb is slated to star in the ABC pilot "Good Christian Bitches."

"Sex and the City" creator Darren Star will act as executive producer for the dramedy based on Kim Gatlin's novel of the same name.

The show will focus on Amanda Vaughn, a recently divorced mother of two who moves back to the opulent Dallas neighborhood where she grew up, looking for a fresh start.

Gatlin likens the storyline to "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and "Desperate Housewives" on steroids.

We bet if the series gets picked up, ABC will change the title to something a little less "in your face!"

On the CBS lot, "The King's Speech" actress Jennifer Ehle is said to be starring in an unnamed supernatural medical drama.

Ehle will act opposite "The A-Team" star Patrick Wilson in the Susannah Grant pilot, with Jonathon Demme directing.

The show centers on a competitive surgeon who gets lessons on life from the here-after when his ex-wife passes away.

Ehle will have more time to devote to the show now that she has wrapped filming on "Contagion" and "Ides of March."

Both shows have talented writers, directors and actors on board, which should make for some interesting pilots!
