In case you didn’t already know, the CW has taken on another one of L.J. Smith’s popular book series, and is creating a TV series. The Secret Circle pilot script is currently in production, and Deadline is reporting that The Vampire Diaries’ Kevin Williamson has joined the project. This is very exciting news! Also, if you want to follow the progress of this pilot (still hasn’t been picked up yet), the production and casting go to Secret Circle Online and follow on Twitter @secretcirclefan.
Williamson has come onboard another CW drama project,Secret Circle, which is based on a three-book series from The Vampire Diariesauthor L.J. Smith. It centers on a California teen who moves to her mom’s hometown of New Salem and discovers that she is a witch. To complete the reunion, the project hails from Alloy Entertainment and WBTV, the companies behind Diaries. It was first set at the CW in October with Angel alums Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain as executive producers and Andrew Miller as writer/exec producer. Williamson is now working on the script and serving as an executive producer on the project, which, with its auspices, has emerged as a strong contender for a pilot pickup. Just like with the potential Diaries companion, on which there was talk about Plec joining Williamson, while not currently attached toSecret Circle, Plec could come on board in the future.
