The Selection - SpoilerTV CW pilot script preview - CW's answer to NBC's Kings

The Selection:

A very unusual show for the CW it is somewhat of a teenage girl version NBC' Kings and Harry Potter with the cheesiness of Once Upon a Time. the series is set in a fantasy world were people are assigned numbers for their class, a 5TH class girl "America" is "sold" by her father into a competition called The Selection in which different girls compete to become the new Princess of the realm. However the lead America already has a lover who is a 6th class interested in joining the royal army. The setting is a very conservative society where sex outside of marrige leads to jail.

Similar to NBC' King is a subplot where the queen's daughter is having an affair with one of the girl competing in the selection.

The series is very ambitious, and is one of those shows that could just be completely awful or special depending on its execution, i'm not quite sure the CW can handle a show like this but its certainly something different.
The show also feels like it is written for a much younger audience even more so than most CW shows, it feels more targeted for female teens than W 18 - 34.

There is a more interesting storyline in the background of a rebel army plotting to overthrow the royal family that kidnaps some of the girls competing in "The Selection".

The Show features alot of strong women, most of the leaders of the rebel army are women, and the Queen and her flamboyant advisor have a strong political influence.

The overall tone is much lighter than CW fantasy series such as The Vampire Diaries.

Success chances: This show is a big risk but perhaps if done right it could tap into a huge "Once Upon a Time" style audience but this could also be the worst show of 2012 - 2013 something like this really depends on execution in a huge way.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.
