The CW has picked up a pilot based on L.J. Smith's "Vampire Diaries" series of books, reports Variety.

"Vampire Diaries" comes from Alloy Entertainment, the same company whose past book series led to the Dub's series "Gossip Girl" and "Privileged."

Originally published in 1993, "Vampire Diaries" revolves around a young woman whose 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.

Warner Bros. TV, where Alloy (which owns the rights to "Vampire Diaries") is set up, is the studio; Alloy's Les Morgenstein and Bob Levy are also executive producers.

I mean it's the WB for cryin out loud, you know they are just gonna turn it into a lame teen version of True Blood or something to cash in on this new craze.

Oh ok. It's still only being advertised here but not actually out yet. I'll take a look but if it's different I will probably hate it as well!

Re: vampire diaries

Let me know what you think baby smile

Re: vampire diaries

I hope the series is good, it starts this coming Thursday and I rather enjoyed the books (for the most part).

I think so. I read them sooo long ago I don't remember much.

Re: vampire diaries

I hear this show is just TERRIBLE much like I thought it would be.

Re: vampire diaries

It's not as terrible as I thought it would be. Some of the acting wasn't great, but it was pretty entertaining.

Re: vampire diaries

Me and Vampy both watched this; both thought it started off really bad but may have some future value.  She even said it was a 'Twilight' rip-off, and she loves the books and movie.  At least they have a reason why the vamp can be in sunlight- his ring (remember 'Angel' and the ring?).  If they keep away from the mushy teen crap it'll work as a horror series, otherwise it's a teen show with a vamp in it.  Thank Nylarhotep they are not sparkly.

Re: vampire diaries

I saw the last 5 min while I was waiting for my show Supernatural to start...  it looked liked it sucked...
