The CW has put in development Prohibited, an hourlong soapy drama from Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed’s Rare Birds Productions and Warner Bros. TV.

Written by Jesse Lasky (Revenge), Prohibited is described as an upstairs/downstairs Southern soap where high-spirited former thief Amelia Jones attempts a fresh start in male-dominated Bourbon Country. Her new life, however, is upended when her two sisters show up demanding Amelia’s help in orchestrating the most dangerous heist of their lives: robbing the Money Room of the Kentucky Derby. Amelia now finds herself torn between the thrill of her dangerous past and her newfound ambition of becoming a Bourbon Queen.

New parents Somerhalder and Reed executive produce via their Rare Birds as part of the company’s pod deal with Warner Bros.. Lasky is co-executive producer, while Rare Birds’ Tracy Ryerson produces.

Lasky was a writer-associate producer on the last three seasons of ABC’s Revenge and most recently has been a writer on CBS’ Code Black.

Reed is repped by Paradigm, Thruline Entertainment and Morris Yorn. Former The Vampire Diaries star Somerhalder is repped by ICM Partners, Untitled Entertainment and Morris Yorn. Lasky is repped at Paradigm and Echo Lake.

Jun 24th: News: CW stars Ian Somerhalder, Sophia Bush, Austin Nichols on Gulf Oil Disaster: We’re enraged!

Michelle | Categories: News | 1 Comment

Louisiana native and “Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder has been working tirelessly to promote awareness of the dire situation on the Gulf Coast since the spill two months ago. He’s been keeping fans and fellow activists updated via his Twitter, @iansomerhalder.

Recently, he’s expressed frustration about the lack of industry and celebrity voices speaking out about the disaster.

“Brad Pitt and people at his level in this industry – they do amazing things for the world, all over the world,” Somerhalder tells Zap2it. “But it seems obvious to me that there’s a certain silence, with this particular issue, and I have my own theories why — politically, why that might be, but I would never discuss that, because they’re my thoughts. It’s not my place to project that on anyone.”

Somerhalder isn’t alone in his quest to bring awareness and aid to the Gulf coast. A number of celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Jenny McCarthy, and Alyssa Milano participated in Larry King’s special two-hour telethon “Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help,” which raised $1.8 million for disaster relief. And this week, some of Somerhalder’s fellow CW stars added their voices to the cause as well.

“One Tree Hill” star Sophia Bush has never been a fan of online social networking, but she and her co-star Austin Nichols signed up for Twitter accounts this week (@SophiaBush and @AUS10NICHOLS).

“I’ve never been a person that’s wanted to open up any facet of my personal life to any kind of social media,” Bush tells Zap2it, calling from New Orleans, where she and Nichols have been working with Global Green and learning about the impact of the B.P. oil spill.

“We started accounts because we were so angry about the spill,” Nichols — Bush’s boyfriend on screen and off — explains. “We wanted to get as many followers as we could before we got here so that we could tell people what’s going on.”

“All of my skepticism has been destroyed,” Bush says. “Last night the sheer outpouring of support, and not to sound cliche, but the outpouring of love that we’ve received — I have cried. I am humbled and appreciative.”
