Reese Witherspoon Has Great Expectations For New Project

You know the problem with Charles Dickens' work? Too long and not enough jokes!

At least, that seems to be the theory behind modern re-imagining of Great Expectations!

Exec producer Reese Witherspoon, along with CBS TV Studios, Television 360, and Pacific Standard sold the project to the CW!

Based loosely on the classic book, Expectations will follow a young country girl who dreams of becoming a success in the city and is helped out by an anonymous benefactor.

Something tells us this version will be a bit happier than the original, since it's going to be a sitcom!

Hmm. Is anyone else getting the sense that this might seem vaguely similar to Sweet Home Alabama? Take out the benefactor element and add Patrick Dempsey and its basically the same story!
