Chuck may be nearing the end, but Josh Schwartz is prepared to jump back into the world of crime-fighting. With a twist.
Sources confirm that the man behind Chuck, The OC, Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie has signed on to adapt Misfits - a British hit that has earned multiple BAFTA awards and which premieres its third season later this month - for American television.
The show centers on young community service workers who receive supernatural powers following an electrical storm. Think Heroes meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Alphas meets (based on the following UK promo) Skins. Schwartz has not reached a deal with any network yet, but would The CW really pass on this potential hit?
