The CW announced their new fall schedule this morning. There’s only one real new Genre series this season – The Secret Circle, which is based around a group of teenage witches in the town of New Salem, and is based on another young-adult novel series from the author of the Vampire Diaries. Outside of Genre, Sarah Michell Gellar returns to TV in the series Ringer, where she plays a dual role as an alcoholic woman on the run from shady characters, who holes up with her rich twin sister (who has problems of her own). Hart of Dixie is about a big-city New York doctor who moves to a practice in a small-town in the South. Our final new series is H8R, a reality series wherein celebs confront their haters, scheduled before America’s Next Top Model. Nikita, the TV series based on the film by Luc Besson, is being moved to Fridays, before Supernatural.
Count me in for anything starring SMG.
My wife will probably watch The Secret Circle, since she’s a big fan of The Vampire Diaries. In a truely unusual fashion she says that the books are absolute rubbish but the show is great. It’s rare to see TV/Movies improve on the source material but the way she talks there is nowhere to go but up.
Hart of Dixie sounds like Doc Hollywood/Everwood
Speaking of new shows, seems a planned cartoon with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a crimefighter has been shelved.
