Following the four major networks making numerous pilot announcements yesterday, The CW has now come out with a two shows it hopes to include on the 2013-2014 schedule. They are...

The CW

The Selection, a Hunger Games-like romance set centuries in the future, during which young females compete against each other in a battle to become the country's next week. The project was shelved after pilot season last year, with Aimee Teegarden cast in the lead.

Producers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (Dollhouse, Vampire Diaries) remain in charge of the revamped series.

Company Town (from ex-Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble), a drama based around two women cast on opposing sides of a scandal that divides both a town and its local military base.

I see the CW decided to order fewer pilots... This probably means that 90210 and The Carrie Diaries are safe. Hart of Dixie is likely to get another season. Nikita is on the bubble. Somehow I don't think Beauty and The Beast will survive especially if The Originals gets ordered. They will do two things: Move it to Friday or Cancel it so The Originals can be lead in by The Vampire Diaries.


I guess the CW are a firm believer in "better luck next time".
