British TV series FOOTBALLERS' WIVES has been given the green light by US network ABC and will be made into a pilot series with SUPER RETURNS director Bryan Singer attached. The network first ordered a script for the project last summer (06). Singer signed a deal to develop projects with ABC and is interested in directing the new show. He previously directed the pilot for the hit TV drama HOUSE and remains an executive producer on the series. The US version of the show will be set in the world of US pro football rather than soccer, but will retain much of the over-the-top spirit of the original.
