Anne Heche's Save Me may have ended on NBC, but that doesn't mean the Peacock Network isn't interested in keeping Heche in the family. According to Deadline, Heche and Colette Buron have sold a comedy to NBC that could be a starring vehicle for Heche. Reportedly,
It centers on Beauty Department Sales Manager Poppy Blake, 43, who questions everything about love and relationships. With the help of her hilariously opinionated sister Chelsea, her romantically deprived co-workers, and a vast array of department store clients, Poppy turns a comic yet anthropological eye on what love and sex really mean for women.
Four words sum up the love Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens has for soaps — “Santa Barbara” and “Anne Heche” (ex-Vicky and Marley Hudson, Another World). NBC has finally set the premiere date for Heche's comedy, Save Me, which means Jamey must be in heaven! (Editor's Note: He isn't. He'd rather she be on The Good Wife, Scandal or Revenge.)
Save Me, starring Another World alum Anne Heche (Jamey Giddens’ favorite Vicky Hudson and Marley Love!), was among the new shows NBC ordered for 2012-2013. In the supernatural comedy, Heche portrays Beth, who believes she is a prophet.
After a near-death experience (choking on a hero sandwich), Beth is revived only to realize she now has a direct line to God. Of course, her husband Tom is skeptical and dismissive - and his mistress is all but hostile that her lover's wife is now a prophet! But when inexplicable things begin to happen, everyone's beliefs are tested. Beth starts to say and do things that shock her family and entrance her friends, but she isn't going to be your typical "fire and brimstone" prophet. Let's just say if God had a desperate housewife as His mouthpiece, Beth would be it! She is the absolute last person on Earth who would be chosen. Then again, they say He works in mysterious ways. And this one is a real mystery!
