Gossip Girl Spinoff Still Alive For Mid-Season Pickup?

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.

Gossip Girl Quotes

[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.

Napoleon once said that secrets travel fast in Paris. But Gossip Girl travels faster. Bisou bisou.
