Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who are behind the CW‘s departing drama “Gossip Girl,” have set up another drama project at the network that take place in an elite school. The high-concept “Copeland Prep” is set at the premier secondary school in the nation, which is so fiercely competitive it’s turning its students into monsters — literally — and spreading the disturbing ramifications throughout the town.
Deadline reports that the project was written by Bret Easton Ellis, who is executive producing with Fake Empire’s Schwartz, Savage and Len Goldstein as well as Nicky Weinstock.
Catherine Hardwicke, who has experience with projects about students who are not quite human having directed the first Twilight movie, will serve as executive consultant. Warner Bros TV is producing with Fake Empire. In addition to Gossip Girl, the duo’s company has “Hart Of Dixie” as well as the upcoming “The Carrie Diaries” and “Cult” at the CW.
