‘DESPERATE Housewives” creator Marc Cherry says the show’s hotly anticipated DVD will include censored scenes too hot for ABC.
“Certain actresses [on the show] really don’t like to wear bras,” Cherry says. “We try to accommodate them as much as possible. We do a lot of blurring.”
Cherry also says that one unaired scene, featuring “Housewives” star Nicollette Sheridan (Edie Britt) in her skivvies, could be included on the show’s DVD version.
“We didn’t realize how skimpy her underwear was,” Cherry says in a report that appeared first on the TV industry website, jackmyers.com.
“Housewives,” the season’s highest-rated new show, has raised eyebrows with its racy content centered around the women of Wisteria Lane.
DVDs of TV shows have become a marketing bonanza, reaping huge profits for studios, stars and creators. And “extras” — like new scenes — often help sell the discs.
Nowadays, a DVD of a show’s first season can be issued immediately after the show’s inaugural season has wrapped — a likely scenario for “Housewives,” which has generated the most attention this TV season and grabbed a raft of awards.
Cherry says other deleted “Housewives” content that could grace a DVD include an S&M sequence featuring Sharon Lawrence and Steven Culp, who plays Bree Van De Kamp’s husband, Rex.
“Standards and practices went nuts,” Cherry says, and the scene had to be cut.
And it won’t just be naughty stuff that will find its way into the DVD, officials say.
“We’ve got a couple of plots that are going to make much more sense once you see what we’ve cut out,” Cherry says.
