What if Nikita and Hellcats had a sexy baby?

The CW’s fourth pilot order of the season goes to the colorfully titled, set-my-season-pass-already Cheerleader Death Squad, which will be penned and executive-produced by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives), Neal Baer (Law & Order: SVU) and Dan Truly (Blue Bloods).

The premise: When a disgraced CIA agent who now teaches at an elite Washington, D.C. prep school realizes that his students have high-level access through personal connections, he trains a select few to be his eyes and ears into the world of international espionage, with the hope of earning his way back into the Agency.

Earlier this week, The CW ordered pilots for a Tales From the Darkside reboot, the Julie Plec-produced outbreak drama Cordon, and Dead People (in which a cabbie sees ghosts).
