Pilot Scoop: The CW Eyes Potential Cult Hit From Gossip Girl Duo

Gossip Girl EPs Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are putting a new twist on the hour-long thriller.

In its first pilot pickup of the year, The CW has ordered Cult, a one-hour drama from Schwartz, Savage and fellow exec producer Len Goldstein that centers on a series of mysterious disappearances that are linked to a TV series called (yep, you guessed it) Cult.

A young female production assistant working on the show joins a journalist blogger in investigating the rabid fans of the series who might be re-creating the crimes seen on the program.

Rockne O’Bannon (V, Farscape) penned the script and will also serve as an EP.
