Sophia Bush does a pilot- Is Life Unexpected winning the battle against One Tree Hill?

One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush has been cast as the lead in a new ABC comedy. While they gave the usual “Pilot is in second place to One Tree Hill” remark lets face it when was the last time a main cast member of a in-danger show ever done a pilot without it being cancelled in the end?

One Tree Hill – Tipped For New Season

The CW president Dawn Ostroff has admitted that she is encouraged by the success of One Tree Hill.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ostroff gave hope to Tree Hill fans about the possibility of an eighth season renewal.

“We’re encouraged. We think [creator] Mark Schwahn has done a great job with the show. The fans are the most loyal and dedicated I think I’ve ever seen. They have some 1.6 million fans on Facebook.”

She added: “Too early too tell [about a renewal], but creatively we feel the show is in a really good place.”

Asked whether One Tree Hill will be competing with Life Unexpected for a slot in the 2010-11 schedule, Ostroff would neither confirm nor deny.

Exclusive: Updates on Life Unexpected,One Tree Hill and Melrose Place’s statuses

According to our contacts at the CW things are looking much darker for Life Unexpected which has gone from 50/50 to highly unlikely to return. This does not however mean that things are much brighter for One Tree Hill which is still very much on the bubble – though it is more likely to be renewed than LUX at this point despite being so much more expensive. Due to it’s costs it is also unlikely to move to SOAPNET if the CW were to cancel it. The problem at the CW is with all their renewals they only plan on picking up 3 to 4 of HMS, BETWIXT, Nikita, Nomads,Untitled horse farm drama, Hellcats, One Tree Hill and Melrose Place (which is considered pretty much dead at this point). The success of High Society could also make things even more competitive. At this point don’t be surprised if come May, the CW doesn’t renew anything else and just picks up 3 to 4 pilots.

CW renews ‘Smallville,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘One Tree Hill,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘90210’

Breaking: CW renews ‘Smallville,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘One Tree Hill,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘90210’

Michael Ausiello @ EW

Cwrenewals_l Good news, fans of all things CW. The network just announced that it has renewed Smallville, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and 90210 for next season. America’s Next Top Model has also been greenlit for two additional cycles.

“As we continue to build The CW Network as a destination for young women, these six shows have clearly contributed to strengthening our schedule and our brand identity,” CW boss Dawn Ostroff said in a statement. “By securing these signature hits for next season, we’re furthering our commitment to deliver high-quality, original programming to our viewers, advertisers and affiliates.”

While the Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model pickups were a foregone conclusion, the fates of Smallville, Supernatural, One Tree Hill, and 90210 were less certain. In the case of Smallville and One Tree Hill, a lot was riding on which of those show’s core cast-members would be returning. Smallville‘s renewal clearly signals that Tom Welling has successfully concluded his contract negotiations with producer Warner Bros, but the same can’t be said for OTH leading man Chad Michael Murray. The actor-writer’s participation next season is TBD, although insiders say he’s expected to return in some capacity.

Conspicuously missing from The CW’s slew of renewals: The freshman gem that is Privileged. However, that doesn’t mean the show has been canceled, a CW source insists. “No final decision has been made yet,” the insider says. Translation: Watch tonight’s season finale, dammit!

Reaction to all the renewals? Do you deem any of them unworthy? And does Privileged deserve a shot at another year? And what about fellow bubble shows Reaper, The Game, and Everybody Hates Chris? Sound off below!
