Witches, vampires and maybe even The Hunger Games???
Sounds like The CW could possibly be adding a Hunger Games-esque show to their lineup this fall, starring Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden!
The network, which aims its programming at young adults, has a pilot called The Selection, which is about a girl (Teegarden) who lives in a Panem-like society and is chosen to enter a cray cray competition to marry a prince!
Sounds pretty familiar, right?
Like the film, the show would be based off a series of books by author Kiera Cass, due out April 24!!
Cass’ agent says the show won’t be an exact TV adaptation to the film, revealing:
“Kiera's characters are not killing each other; it's a love story, a fairy tale.”
The agent goes on to say that the project is "The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor,” and is hoping to piggyback off of the film’s success, just as The CW’s other show, The Vampire Diaries, did with Twilight.
Seems like a smart move to us!!
Now, the pilot has to fight for a time slot on the network, going up against The Carrie Diaries and Arrow.
May the odds be ever in their favor!!!
Would U watch The Selection???
