gossipgirl-120408The CW has confirmed that they are looking at ways to spin off a new series from Gossip Girl for next season. CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff told The Hollywood Reporter that the network is in discussions with the producers of the show to see how a new series could be done. Ostroff notes, however, that nothing has been finalized and they are still in the early stages:

“Nothing really tangible yet, but we’re talking about it,” Ostroff said after her speech at the WWD Style + Media conference in Manhattan. The network is in constant contact with executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, whom Ostroff praised.

“If it’s the right idea, we’d all embrace it and be enthusiastic,” Ostroff said. “But nobody more than Josh and Stephanie want to make sure there’s the right idea that they can wrap their arms around and really be excited about.”

In other CW news, Ostroff said that they still haven’t decided what would happen with the Sunday primetime block after the removal of the Media Rights Capital programming and that for the time being, the movies will continue to be on the schedule:

“We did better this past week than we did with the MRC programming,” Ostroff said. “We’re programming a movie. Obviously it’s only a week later, but we’re going to look at Sunday night.”


“Gossip Girl: Season One”: DVD Review September 9, 2008 10:22 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in DVD Review, Gossip Girl, Television.

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, Gossip Girl is a one-hour drama based on the lives of privileged Manhattan prep school teens. The students first learn that Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), once the Upper East Side’s most notorious party girl, is back in town the way they learn all the important news in their lives — from the blog of the all-knowing, albeit ultra-secretive, Gossip Girl. No one knows Gossip Girl’s identity, but everyone in this exclusive and complicated vicious circle relies on her website and text messages for the latest scoop. Even Serena’s closest friend, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), is surprised to find that Serena has suddenly ended her self-imposed exile to boarding school and returned to Manhattan. Keeping track of the shifting friendships, jealousies and turmoil in this wealthy and complex world isn’t easy, but it’s what Gossip Girl does best!
