Cool. Another fun girly TV series set to premiere in the Fall. Now I haven't read all of the books in the Gossip Girls Series, but what I have read are deliciously delightful. The series revolves around an exclusive group of teenagers going to private school on NYC's Upper East Side. This could be a new contender for 'must-see TV', and god knows we need that. Right?
From Publishers Weekly:
"Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl series (Little, Brown) first hit the YA book scene in 2001, touted as fun chick lit for the younger set—Sex and the City for teens. Readers were soon clamoring for the novels in which anonymous gossip columnist/narrator Gossip Girl, aka GG, follows the living-large exploits of wealthy teenage Manhattanite Blair Waldorf and her friends."
"The series is being billed as the heir-apparent to The O.C. (back when it was worth watching) and with good reason: It was created by Josh Schwartz, the mastermind of the soapy, since departed Fox drama.
Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively (Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants) as a privileged Manhattan prep school student who returns to her school and rekindles a feud with another of her pretty and privileged classmates. Underscoring the drama are the dishy blogs of Gossip Girl, whose identity is a secret but whose voice belongs to Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars). "
GG will air this fall on The CW, Wednesday nights at 9pm after ANTM.
