'Gossip Girl' producers considering spin-off?

Posted on

(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? The producers of the CW’s drama series Gossip Girl are considering a possible spin-off set at the girls’ boarding school. The current thinking is to base the series either on Taylor Momsen’s character, or on a new character introduced after the show returns for its second season this fall. In either case, the spin-off is likely to focus on the storyline of Momsen’s character, Jenny Humphrey, from the Gossip Girl book series. Humphrey is a self-esteem challenged outsider who in the books faces a series of public embarrassments (such as appearing in a teen magazine wearing next to nothing). As a result, Humphrey has to either repeat ninth grade or find a new school. She decides to enter a boarding school and reinvents herself as a popular girl. Her story is told in a series of six Gossip spin-off novels called The It Girl. It is unknown if a spin-off would go to the CW or another network. (Hollywood Reporter)
