Pilot News: The CW Bites into Vampire Diaries and Politics

Source: TV Guide

Not surprisingly, the box-office success of Twilight has led the CW to stake out some territory in the teens-and-vampires genre by picking up a pilot for Vampire Diaries, a Kevin Williamson-penned adaptation of a 15-year-old series of novels.

Similar to (and yet predating) Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight, Vampire Diaries revolves around a young heroine who is the object of obsession of two brothers — both vampires, one good and one … well, he’s more complicated. The bloodsucking siblings fight for her soul, as well as dibs on other residents within their small town.

Williamson (Dawson’s Creek, Scream) is penning the pilot with Julie Plec (Kyle XY), and will exec-produce.

The CW has also greenlit Body Politic, a Washington, D.C-set drama about young up-and-comers toiling for the nation’s capital.

Previously this winter, the CW gave a go-ahead to a “prequel” spin-off of Gossip Girl; Krysten Ritter (Veronica Mars) is the first announced cast member, playing a young Lily’s sister.
