TVGuide.com has chosen The Selection as one of their 13 most promising pilots:
The Selection (CW)
Starring: Aimee Teegarden, Ethan Peck
Summary: Based on the book series by Kiera Cass, this epic romance is set 300 years in the future. A poor young woman named America (Teegarden) is chosen by lottery to participate in a ruthless competition to become Peck’s future queen.
Pedigree: The Vampire Diaries’ Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain wrote the pilot and will executive-produce.
Why we like it: It’s The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor! Yeah, it’s definitely weird, but trust us, the catty backstabbing among the potential wives is just as compelling as The Bachelor’s ridiculousness and less bloody than Games’ serial child murders.
Why it has a shot: In a post-Hunger Games world, this show’s wacky premise is suddenly completely viable — both creatively and financially. (And remember, this is the network that capitalized on Twilight mania with The Vampire Diaries.)
Only a few weeks left until we find out if it’s going to be picked up by the CW or not!
