From the pages of that fine publication, the New York Post:
February 4, 2005
THE "Desperate Housewives" of Wisteria Lane are desperate for a spinoff — and might get one.
"The network [ABC] has saved an area [on the schedule] for me when I'm ready to write it," series creator Marc Cherry tells the latest edition of TV Guide.
But "it's going to take me a couple of seasons before I have the energy [and] time," he says. "I know another angle on telling the stories of the people in this neighborhood."
Cherry says cryptically that the new show would focus on a "segment of Wisteria Lane's population . . . but would be set somewhere else."
