'Vampire Diaries' producer lands witchy CW pilot
The CW has just greenlit a pilot that re-teams Kevin Williamson and Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith for a supernatural drama.
Secret Circle is based on a series of books about a young woman who moves to a new town and discovers that not only is she a witch and part of a secret coven, but she’s also the key that will unlock a centuries-old battle of good versus evil.
(So, it’s not directly related to Williamson/Smith’s Vampire Diaries … different characters … but certainly a potential suitable companion series to the network’s biggest hit … not to confuse further, but there was an literal Vampire Diaries companion series in the works, but that’s been put on hold).
Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television, CBS Television Studios producing along with exec prods Williamson, writer Andrew Miller, and Elizabeth Craft, Sarah Fain, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo.
