So the new Gossip Girl TV Series pilot is now in production. If everything goes well and the CW orders more episodes (which they'd be idiots not to - there's loads of buzz surrounding the show already and it's most likely gonna be their next big thing), they will be set to premiere in the fall. Cast so far:
Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen
Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf
Chace Crawford as Nate
Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey
Penn Badgley as Dan Humphrey
Connor Paolo as Eric van der Woodsen
Matthew Settle as Rufus Humphrey
Kelly Rutherford as Darla van der Woodsen
Ed Westwick as Chuck
Florencia Lozano as Eleanor Waldorf
The Gossip Girl TV Show is based upon the novel series by Cecily von Ziegesar of the same name, which features socialite teenagers growing up on New York's Upper East Side and going to the poshest high schools, and dealing with sex, drugs, and other adult issues. Serena, Blair, Nate, Dan, Vanessa and Jenny are the main characters and rotate in love triangles.
I LOVE these books.
And one thing that upsets me is that they seem to have no Vanessa casted for the show. How could they cut out Vanessa?!?! LOL.
Here's the first picture of the cast:
From L to R: Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Chace Crawford (Nate), Kelly Rutherford (Serena's Mom), Ed Westwick (Chuck), Taylor Momsen (Jenny), and Matthew Settle (Rufus Humphrey).
Looking pretty good to me.
