Brittany Snow, Andrew McCarthy Film Spinoff

at . Comments

As we know by now, Brittany Snow will star as a younger Lily van der Woodsen (formerly Lily Rhodes) in flashbacks on the May 11 episode of Gossip Girl.

The flashback sequences will set the stage for a Gossip Girl spinoff pilot, which will follow Lily's adventures in Los Angeles as a rebellious teenager.

If feedback is good, the new show will likely be picked up for the fall season.

Andrew McCarthy plays her father, Rick. Here's them on the set this week:

Will we like what we see of young Lily when we meet her in six weeks?

"We're taking some artistic liberties," says Snow. "Hopefully, the audience will see it as a portion of her life and not directly connected to who she is now."

Do you have Bryn Harold? Well then take off your shoes and chase her down, because I need that opera as a front of book idea. They're doing Boris Godunov this spring. Who doesn't love Tsars and Cossacks?
