Gossip Girl Spinoff Still Alive For Mid-Season Pickup?

by at . Comments

It looks like the Gossip Girl spinoff may not be dead just yet.

It did not make the CW's fall roster - The Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place and The Beautiful Life won the three coveted spots for new shows - but it still has some fans among the network's brass, and may just be given a mid-season shot.

Here's this note from TV Guide's spoiler Q&A today, which is actually a response to an inquiry about another CW pilot that did not make the fall cut, Body Politic:

Q: Is there a shot for the CW to pick up Body Politic as a midseason replacement? From the sneak peeks I've seen, it looks like it's got lots of promise!

A: My CW mole tells me that the Beltway drama is still in the running for a midseason slot, but that it's up against the Gossip Girl spinoff (starring Brittany Snow), which has a few high-ranking supporters in the building.

I prefer more the usual gossip girl than the spin off.

IF IT'S ANOTHER NEW SHOW...and IF THERE IS A BLAIR AND CHUCK LOOK ALIKE/ACT ALIKE IN THE SHOW, like lily's friends have a blair and chuck twin or sumthing. lol.

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.
