Kevin Williamson to Open the Secret Circle in Lieu of Vampire Diaries Companion Show
Bad news for fans of "The Vampire Diaries" looking forward to the long talked about companion series. It doesn't look like it will be happening anytime soon as co-creator Kevin Williamson's schedule has not allowed him to focus on fleshing out and writing the new project. However ...
According to Deadline Williamson has come on board another CW drama project, "Secret Circle", which is based on a three-book series from The Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith.
It centers on a California teen who moves to her mom's hometown of New Salem and discovers that she is a witch. To complete the reunion, the project hails from Alloy Entertainment and WBTV, the companies behind "Diaries". It was first set at The CW in October with "Angel" alums Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain as executive producers and Andrew Miller as writer/exec producer.
Williamson is now working on the script and serving as an executive producer on the project, which, with its auspices, has emerged as a strong contender for a pilot pickup. Just like with the potential "Diaries" companion, on which there was talk about fellow "Diaries" executive producer Julie Plec joining Williamson, while she is not currently attached to "Secret Circle", Plec could come on board in the future.
