With The Vampire Diaries a hit for The CW, the network is looking for the show’s co-creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson to create a new series. Deadline reports that The CW specifically is looking for the Scream writer to come up with a “companion” for The Vampire Diaries – though it doesn’t sound like a spinoff, but rather a compatible series to run with Vampire Diaries on Thursday nights.
Deadline reports that this project is in the early stages of development and “focuses on a group of people who investigate paranormal happenings.” No further details are available, so we’ll have to wait and see how close this skews to The CW’s Supernatural. Williamson’s partner on Vampire Diaries, Julie Plec, is in talks to join the project and co-write the pilot with Williamson.
As for The CW looking for a new series to pair with The Vampire Diaries, it’s hard not to wonder what this might mean for Nikita. That series is doing comparatively well on The CW, but also loses a lot of The Vampire Diaries’s lead-in audience. With Smallville ending this season, I know I’m not alone in speculating that perhaps The CW will move Nikita to Fridays next fall, to be paired with Supernatural, to continue putting the networks’ most male-skewing series in one block.
I’m not sure, but I for one love the time slot it’s in right now. Friday night’s are tricky for shows and I’d hate to see such a great show get a crap slot like that.
Episode Synopsis: NIKITA “All the Way” Episode 11 – Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) informs Nikita (Maggie Q) that Division is sending her on her first mission to kill the leader of a crime syndicate. Alex is uneasy about taking someone’s life but is reassured by Nikita who insists on helping her with the kill order. Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) informs Percy (Xander Berkeley) and Michael (Shane West) when he discovers the shell program that a Division mole has been using to connect to Nikita in the outside world. When the mission doesn’t go as planned, Nikita makes a quick decision in an effort to clear Alex’s name. Inside Division, Jayden (Tiffany Hines) attempts to reveal Alex as the mole but Thom (Ashton Holmes) steps in and a shocking accident clears her name. Terrence O’Hara directed the episode written by executive producer Craig Silverstein
Bad news for Jolleen fans, the popular forum Love At First Sight seems to be down for posting. While we wait for the forum to return to normal you are welcome to join ours, but we’ll keep you updated as LAFS gets fixed and will let you know when it’s back full time!
Here’s a pair we haven’t seen in awhile.
The last time we saw these two together was back in 2005, when Lyndsy’s character Colleen Carlton left Genoa City. Fans were and still are upset over Colleen’s re-casting later that year and earlier this year the character was laid to rest. Having these two together again is quite a treat for Y&R’s Jolleen fans.
From the sounds of Lyndsy’s tweets these last few days Thad will be joining Nikita for a bit. No word on who he will be playing, but we’re glad he’s here all the same.
Might love soon be in the air on Nikita?
The show is casting for an attractive actor to come on board The CW drama in the role of a new neighbor for Alex.
Look for this recurring character to offer Alex a glimpse outside the world of Division and give her hope that life doesn’t have to be so scary and depressing all the time.
Got any suggestions on who should play this role?
