The Secret Circle Will (Hopefully) Be A TV Show!
Maybe. Hopefully. It's "In the pipe," according to io9.com, which, like the similarly vague "in development," seems to mean that the pilot script is finished but has not been cast or shot. L.J. Smith seems to be afraid that the deal is falling through. I am wishing on lashes that nothing happens to derail this project.
The show is being produced by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, who have written and produced episodes of Angel, Dollhouse, and The Vampire Diaries. And now Kevin Williamson is involved as well, so the show is bound to be snappy and fun.
I am most worried about the casting. The book covers are iconic (to me) and I am hoping they can find people who look exactly like the models originally used on the 1992 covers. Apparently, someone out there agrees with me about L.J. Smith covers because there is an ENTIRE WEB SITE devoted to them. Just look at them. Aren't they glorious?
