The CW, network behind the hit Tv shows like 90210, The Vampire Diaries & Supernatural has handed its first pilot order of the season to Cult, a drama that centers on a young female production assistant who grows suspicious after a rash of disappearances and possible murder seem tied to the show she works on, called Cult. She teams up with a journalist blogger to begin looking into the show’s rabid fans, who may be behind the actual crimes.
The show has been developed several times over the years at the networks — including ABC last year, the CW in 2009 and at the WB in 2006. The WB had even ordered the project up as a pilot starring Matt Bomer, but it was scrapped when The WB itself folded that year.
Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Len Goldstein will also executive produce with Rockne O’Bannon. Schwartz, Savage and Goldstein already produce The CW’s Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie through their Fake Empire production company. Warner Bros. TV is the studio.
