New SF/F For CW--The Secret Circle & Chloe

http://www.ksitetv.com/3957/new-two-...le-sized-void/

The Secret Circle
The L.J. Smith project, coming from Alloy Entertainment, is Secret Circle. It is about a California teen who moves to her mom’s hometown of New Salem and learns that she is a witch. Whedon writers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain are adapting this one with a pilot script coming from Andrew Miller, who will also be an executive producer.
Chloe
The other project, from Marti Noxon and Prison Break’s Dawn Parouse, is called Chloe. It’s not about Smallville’s Ms. Sullivan but is instead about a young con artist who dies and comes back to earth as a “Divine Covert Operator,” or an angel. Jason Fuchs (Holy Rollers) will be writing.
Looks like they are trying to fill the void after Smallville & Supernatural are gone.

TBH, Supernatural sounded awful when I first heard about it, and then when I saw the teasers for it.

Pretty much the reason I'd avoided it until I happened upon it later towards the end of season 3.

Like most good TV, it's less the idea and more the execution.

Honestly this. Supernatural sounded very Monster of the Week when it was pitched and the two leads really didn't appeal to me that much.

Jared Padalecki was the pretty uninteresting and wooden Dean from Gilmore Girls and while I'd seen Jensen Ackles on a number of genre shows I wasn't a big fan of his either. Seemed like the WB was just putting two pretty boys together one of whom I thought was exceptionally bland.

However, I'm not a very big fan of Marti Noxon. I think she was responsible for some of the horrible direction Buffy went in after Whedon started spending less time on the show.

You got that right. It must confound them that both are thriving (by CW standards) on Friday nights. Both have small, but extremely loyal audiences. I feared season 6 on SPN would be a disaster, but so far the new show runner Sera Gamble--she's been a writer on the show since the beginning--has made the new season very entertaining. Now if she were the exec producer and/or head writer on these two new shows, I'd have some hope. With Marti Noxon, not so much. They may turn out to be good, but the CW's only created "hit" that didn't come from it's two parent networks is the Vampire Diaries (Nikita is starting to falter in SPN's old timeslot).

Which probably explains why they're going with sci-fi/fantasy.

Speaking of Padalecki, what a difference ten years makes. Anyone who saw those shirtless reverse pullups can attest to that.

"Secret Circle" doesn't appeal to me...but "Chloe" does...hope it works out.

Re: New SF/F For CW--The Secret Circle & Chloe

What was more interesting to me was the possibility of a Sandman (not the one seen on Smallvilee but a different sandman) based tv show developed by Supernatural's Eric Kripke in the article you posted...

http://www.ksitetv.com/3957/new-two-...le-sized-void/


There is also talk about Supernatural’s Eric Kripke developing the DC/Vertigo comic book series Sandman, but nothing more has surfaced about that since the initial announcement. However, with projects like these, surely more of the loyal genre audience will return and/or stick with the sometimes-struggling network.

The ad that came up, "1 tip for a flat belly" looked more interesting than either show.

I'd be there for Kripke - Sandman though.

It’s not about Smallville’s Ms. Sullivan...
And that's where I lost interest.

Epic Fails require hubris to be "epic". This just sounds like half-baked Whedonesque laziness.

Nothing's official, even when it is.

Not in Television anyways, and certainly not Sci-Fi TV in particular.
