Vampires continue to take over your television

The CW (home to shows like Supernatural, one of my favorites, and awakeningGossip Girl) has picked up a pilot based on L.J. Smith’s Vampire Diaries series.

Originally published in 1993, Vampire Diaries revolves around a young woman torn between two vampire brothers. The brothers — one good, one evil — are battling for her soul, and the souls of her pals, family, and the small town where they live.

The CW has reunited with Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Dawson’s Creek writer Kevin Williamson to executive produce and write. Julie Plec (Kyle XY) is also on board to write and executive produce.
