Gossip Girl Spinoff Postmortem

at . Comments

Why didn't the Gossip Girl spinoff get picked up? A simple case of other strong pilots out there, and the '80s theme not being fully embraced by network executives.

Here's a little Gossip Girl blurb from EW's Michael Ausiello today. Not much new here, just some scoop on why the spinoff didn't make the cut from a good source:

Q: Why did The CW kill the Gossip Girl spin-off?

A: I'm told the higher-ups never embraced the whole '80s concept. I'm also told the reason CW boss Dawn Ostroff stopped short of declaring the project dead last week was because there's a chance it could be reconceived down the road.

Yes, that's a great idea! 'Cause I think if you seperate it. The spin-off would be kinda dull..


Maybe it's still weak for a spinoff, i'm a fan of showing it parallel to the main series, inside the episodes or something...




So I guess we should consider that this Spin-off isn't going to work. Too bad...




Gossip Girl Quotes

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
