The CW recently issued a slew of pilots for the network's upcoming pilot season including a spin-off of Vampire Diaries titled The Originals, as well as a remake of British 70's sci-fi series The Tomorrow People. However, one series that had been rumored as being in the beginning stages of production for the network was very obviously missing from the list of shows that we'll be seeing this fall. Namely, Amazon, the rumored series that has had YOUNG AVENGERS writer Allan Heinberg attached.
Heinberg's name first popped up in connection to the script for Amazon, which at that point had not been "contractually guaranteed" or even greenlit by Warner and the CW. The latest news about the show is that it is garnering a lot of interest from the CW network which claims the series is currently waiting on the script by Heinberg. Additionally, the show had begun its preliminary casting back in November, and it seems they are still looking for the right person for the role.== TEASER ==
The success of the CW's Arrow is likely not lost on the network as the show premiered back in October with a whopping 4 million viewers and its ratings have remained consistent throughout. If the network gets their hands on a script they feel they can back, then there is still a chance that the network will "order an off-cycle pilot," meaning that it will go into production relatively earlier.
The question remains, will they manage to find the right actress to play Diana? And will this show be set on Paradise Island, or will it be more grounded in reality like Arrow? We're thinking the latter, but what do you think? What do they need to look for in an actress for this series? What are you hoping to see? Will Amazon be as successful as Arrow?
