Starring: Britt Robertson (Scream 4), Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Jessica Parker Kennedy (Smallville), Phoebe Tonkin (Home And Away)
Main creative forces: Based on the books by – LJ Smith (The Vampire Diaries); showrunner – Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries); pilot director – Liz Friedlander (The Vampire Diaries)
One-line pitch: The Vampire Diaries, with fewer vampires and more witches
The skinny: The story follows a California teen named Cassie Blake who moves to her mom’s hometown of New Salem, Maine, and discovers that she comes from a family of witches.
Initial thoughts? Why didn’t they just do a Vampires Diaries spin-off starring Bonnie? She never gets enough to do.
