Wowsa! Between these new show pickups and that Gossip Girl 100th episode shocker, it's been an exciting couple of days for The CW!
In the latest big move by CW president Mark Pedowitz, the network has picked up three new hourlong drama shows: J.J. Abrams' Shelter, Mark Harmon's Joey Dakota, and The Selection from Vampire Diaries producers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain.
Here's how Abrams' Shelter is being described:
"[It is] set at an historic New England summer resort where the new and returning staff attend to the practical, emotional and often comical needs of the guests while navigating friendships, rivalries and romances of their own."
And here's how Harmon's Joey Dakota is being described:
"The romantic-time travel musical revolves around a documentary filmmaker who travels back in time to the 1990s where she meets and falls in love with the rock star subject of her film. When she unexpectedly returns to present day, she must find her way back to the past to reunite with her love and prevent his untimely death."
AND here's how the VD producers' The Selection is being described:
"…An epic romance set 300 years in the future. The project…centers on a poor young woman who is chosen by lottery to participate in a competition to become the next queen of a war-torn nation at a crossroads."
Sounds like a VERY intriguing roster of new shows! Keep up the good work, Prez Pedowitz! We're liking the direction in which UR bringing the network!!!
