The CW Orders "The Secret Circle" and "Hart of Dixie"

WHAT'S IN:

The Secret Circle



The drama, which is based on a three-book series from The Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith, centers on a young woman (Life Unexpected’s Britt Robertson) who moves to a new town only to discover that she’s not only a witch but also the key to unlocking a centuries-old battle of good vs. evil. Like the CW’s Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl, Circle is an Alloy production written and executive produced by Vampire Diaries co-creator Kevin Williamson along with Andrew Miller. Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo also serve as executive producers, with director Liz Freidlander attached to the pilot. The combo of Williamson and another Smith property made a project that was already garnering high marks a must-have, say sources.

Hart of Dixie

The doctor drama centers on a young New York doctor (The O.C.’s Rachel Bilson) after she inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town inhabited by eccentrics. The project comes from Fake Empire’s Josh Schwartz (O.C., Gossip Girl, Chuck), Stephanie Savage (OC, Gossip Girl) and Len Goldstein. Frequent collaborators Leila Gerstein (OC, Gossip Girl) will write and executive produce with fellow executive producer Jason Ensler (Chuck, Gossip Girl) who directed the pilot. After garnering criticism for its heavily serialized, homogenous slate of upper-class-set series, Dixie is something of a shift. Working in the project’s favor: the brand equity of its producers, its non tony neighborhood setting and its potential repeatabilty.

Ringer

On Friday, the CW for the following:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar will likely make her return to TV, just not on CBS as many had expected. Instead, the CW is close to ordering to series a drama about a woman on the run from the mob who hides out by inhabiting the life of her twin sister -- until she learns that her twin’s life has a bounty on it as well. Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) and Kristoffer Polaha (Life Unexpected) co-star in the drama from ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios. Its production team includes still more CW vets, Supernatural writers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder as well as Peter Traugott (Samantha Who?), Pam Veasey (CSI: NY) and Richard Shepard (Ugly Betty), who directed the pilot. Given the project's younger-skewing, serialized tone, it is a better fit for the CW, several insiders agreed. The CW was rumored to be the series on Friday.

The CW is scheduled to unveil its complete slate to Madison Avenue buyers on Thursday in New York.

I wish Hart of Dixie had been created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and not Josh Schwartz...

I hope so, but its too early to say. It could get lower ratings than Days, given its on the CW lol.

SO I guess they've given up on making a DC series to replace Smallville. Which is just as well, it sounded terrible.

I just found out Gale Harold will play Shelly Hennings father and the head of the Coven on Secret Circle.. I freakin adore him.. :wub:... I wonder why they cast him as her father though, he doesn't look old enough to play her dad... But who cares.. I get to look at this sexy a** every Thursday night.... :cart: :cart:

^Yup, that was the only thing that initially got my attention about a month back. Even he doesn't get star billing, I haven't seen in him anything in awhile so I thought I'd check it out. Then I heard Thomas Dekkar was cast and I was more interested.

He was in Desparate Housewives, that is until the motorcycle accident. He was also in the last season of Hellcats. I am glad CW had the good sense to hold on to him.

Yeah, I caught one episode of DH he was in, but couldn't get into the show. I loved the first season of DH but didn't care much for it after that and not even Brian Kinney could get me to watch Hellcats. LOL!
