Marc CherryCan Marc Cherry do for faith what he did for the suburban housewife? The 'Desperate Housewives' creator is at work on a new series, 'Hallelujah,' based on a small town that is being torn apart by the forces of good and evil.

According to Variety, things change in Hallelujah, Tenn. when a stranger comes to town and brings in peace, justice and faith.

Cherry has been with 'Desperate Housewives' since its launch in 2004 and is contracted until 2013, but the stars are only signed until the end of this season. The creator also has a two-year deal with ABC.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Role Models' Recap

The fact that Orion was also Steve Bartowski -- Chuck's primary objective, i.e. "get back dad" -- was evident. However, for appearances, he let the team believe that he believed saving the interset was the most important thing.
