The CW Is Heading to Copeland Prep with Catherine Hardwicke and Bret Easton EllisMore terror is heading to television, this time from the wonderfully twisted mind of author Bret Easton Ellis. While it’s doubtful we’ll be seeing any creative uses for lube and a hamster Habitrail, the news still makes us smile.

Deadline reports that Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who are behind The CW‘s departing drama “Gossip Girl,” have set up another project at the network that takes place in an elite school. The high-concept “Copeland Prep” is set at the premier secondary school in the nation, which is so fiercely competitive it’s turning its students into monsters — literally — and spreading the disturbing ramifications throughout the town. The project was written by Bret Easton Ellis, who is executive producing with Fake Empire’s Schwartz, Savage and Len Goldstein as well as Nicky Weinstock.

Catherine Hardwicke, who has experience with projects about students who are not quite human, having directed the first Twilight movie, will serve as executive consultant. Warner Bros. TV is producing with Fake Empire.
