Oct 12th: Paul Wesley and Pretty Little Liars Showrunner Developing Show about a Hookup App

Jen | Categories: News, Non TVD Projects, Paul Wesley, TV Series | Comment

Freeform is really leaning into what it knows its audience likes: shows from I. Marlene King, hot young stars and hookup apps.

The network is developing a new drama, Tapped, from Pretty Little Liars showrunner King and The Vampire Diaries vet Paul Wesley, Deadline reports. The series follows three grad students who create a hookup app (yes, it’s called Tapped. How did you guess?) that turns the trio into millionaires almost instantly. However, the app also comes with a few unexpected — and dangerous — consequences which the creators then must try to control.

Tapped is written by Thomas Brandon and is based on the unpublished memoir of Andrew Shaffer, who is known for his humor books How to Survive a Sharknado and Fifty Shades of Earl Grey.

This would be King’s fourth series with Freeform. She is best known for running Pretty Little Liars, which aired its series finale in June She is currently developing a spin-off series, The Perfectionists, as well as running the Bella Thorne drama Famous in Love.

Wesley recently wrapped up an eight-season run on The Vampire Diaries, where he starred as Stefan Salvatore and began his directing and producing career. Earlier this year, Wesley also directed an episode of the Freeform series Shadowhunters.

Sep 22nd: Nina Dobrev Joins Ken Marino’s ‘Dog Days’ Pic, Filming Roger Avary’s ‘Lucky Day’

Jen | Categories: Casting News, News, Nina Dobrev, Non TVD Projects | Comments Off on Nina Dobrev Joins Ken Marino’s ‘Dog Days’ Pic, Filming Roger Avary’s ‘Lucky Day’

EXCLUSIVE: Just over a week before the re-imagined Flatliners comes out, Nina Dobrev is keeping her days full with two new projects.

Currently filming Roger Avary’s Lucky Day in Toronto, The Vampire Diaries alum also is joining Ken Marino’s sophomore feature directing effort Dog Days, I’ve learned. Dobrev will play Good Day Seattle host Elizabeth in the canine-connected ensemble comedy from the West Hot American Summer vet. The character relies on her pet through life and work stresses, including the unwelcomed advances of an on-air colleague. Penned by Elissa Matsueda and Erica Oyama, and produced by Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon, Jennifer Monore, and Scott Holroyd, Dog Days is set to start shooting this year in Los Angeles.

Before then, Dobrev will finish up her role in the first film directed by Pulp Fiction co-scribe Avary in over a decade. Co-starring with Reservoir Dogs alum Michael Madsen and Luke Bracey in the ex-con thriller, Dobrev portrays Chloe in the Killing Zoe helmer’s latest effort. The character is the French-speaking artist wife of the ex-con and mother of his daughter at the center of Lucky Day, which all takes place over a single unpleasant day.

Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody are producing Lucky Day.

Add to the September 29-debuting Flatliners with Ellen Page and Kiefer Sutherland, Dobrev is in Departure, starring Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield co-starring, and comedy Crash Pad with Christina Applegate and Domhnall Gleeson.

Dobrev is represented by CAA and Lighthouse Management.

Jen | Categories: Julie Plec, News, Season 5, The Originals, TV Series | Comments Off on The Originals to End After Season 5

Prepare to say goodbye to the Mikaelson family: The Originals will come to an end following Season 5, TVLine has learned.

Creator Julie Plec made the announcement on Twitter, via a letter to the fans inviting them “to help us say goodbye to The Originals, which begins shooting its fifth and final season on Monday.

“It’s both a gift and a burden to be able to control the ending of a series,” she continued. “Many shows are not lucky enough to have a hand in deciding when the end has come. Being able to celebrate the completion of The Vampire Diaries was a joyful and deeply emotional ride, a luxury gifted by Mark Pedowitz at The CW and Peter Roth at WBTV, who, as TV fans themselves, know what it means when a fan is able to say goodbye.”

Steven Kruger, a recurring guest star on the CW’s The Originals, has been promoted to series regular on the series for its upcoming Season 5.

The spinoff off The Vampire Diaries aired in midseason and was renewed in May for a fifth season. It had been vulnerable going into its fourth season as there had been discussion whether the spinoff would be able to stand on its own after mothership The Vampire Diaries ended its run.

But The Originals saw respectable ratings business on Friday, where it succeeded TVD. It’s season finale June 23 drew 910,000 total viewers in Live+Same Day and a 0.3/1 rating.

The series follows Klaus Mikaelson and his family in New Orleans. Joseph Morgan stars alongside Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood and Riley Voelkel. It hails from My So-Called Company, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros Television and CBS Television Studios. Julie Plec and Leslie Morgenstein are executive producers.
