    Summary:

    "Kreuk will play an NYPD detective in the pilot, Deadline reports. The show is kinda-sorta based on the late-1980s CBS series that starred Linda Hamilton (whose character was a prosecutor) and Ron Perlman.

    In the pilot, written by Jennifer Levin and Sherri Cooper ("Brothers & Sisters"), Kreuk's character, Catherine, was a witness to the murder of her mother several years prior to the start of the series. The Beast in turn killed the killers, and Catherine has been looking for him ever since. The Beast, meanwhile, is the survivor of "a military experiment gone terribly wrong," per Deadline. "

  • 2 series about Beauty and the Beast!

    ABC, I heard, is producing one too.
  • Jay Ryan is the Beast

    Reminder: This B&B is not to be confused with the B&B pilot that ABC is developing for next season. That one is based on the public domain fairy tale about a girl forced to live in a castle with a beast who eventually wins her heart.

    Will the Beast still win the "Beauty"'s heart through poetry?

    Sana naman Ron Perlman (aka Vincent, the original "Beast") will cameo as the father-figure of the new Beast

    Agree, there are literally tons of pilot series ordered from various networks but only few will make it to fall/mid-season lineup. Although I don't see a reason for CW not picking up this.

    Hell, CW did that on Smallville's spinoff "Aquaman" back in 06. Everything's into place na (even on their web) but was cancelled before it even premiere.
  • randy ortonrandy orton PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Yeah, I think The CW will order this to series since Kristin Kreuk is one of the network's biggest stars.

    Medyo nalilito lang ako sa concept na procedural mixed in with the B&B mythology. Hindi din kasi ako familiar dun sa original.

    OT: Sana maging series din yung time-travel/musical na Pilot. :lol:

  • Reviving this thread.

    CW officially picked up this. Guess this will get the post-Vampire Diaries slot this fall.
    Welcome back Kristin Kreuk on The CW :D
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Good news: I'm hearing that ABC's B&B is no longer in contention for a series pick-up.
  • One B&B is enough. Good job CW and ABC! :)
  • Yey for Kristin Kreuk!
  • CaRaMBaCaRaMBa Administrator PEx Moderator
    Kristin Kreuk needs to be on TV so I'll take whatever show she's on. I don't even care about the story, LOL. :D
  • randy ortonrandy orton PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    :up: for KK!

    Ito kaya ang ilalagay sa Thursday night opposite TVD or yung Arrow?
  • ABC's Beauty and the Beast is DEAD! :hiya:

    CW's BB is rumored to be paired along with Nikita on WEDNESDAY nights! Apparently, Nikita is popular with CW affiliate networks and requested Nikita to be on the pre-programming of their news :D

    On the other hand, ANTM is rumored to be on the Friday slot along with Supernatural. Arrow's most likely getting the post-Vampire Diaries slot.
