The CW Buys High School Monster Drama from Gossip Girl Producers
The network has ordered a script for Copeland Prep, a drama about a private high school so competitive it turns its students into actual monsters, our sister site Deadline reports.
Gossip Girl EPs Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will co-executive produce along with Brett Easton Ellis (American Psycho), who’ll also write the pilot. Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke will serve as executive consultant.
In addition to Gossip Girl — which begins its final season on Monday, Oct. 8 — Schwartz’s Fake Empire is also behind the network’s Hart of Dixie, Carrie Diaries and Cult.
