J.J. Abrams and 'One Tree Hill' creator Mark Schwahn join forces for CW pilot
J.J. Abrams and Mark Schwahn, creator of "One Tree Hill," are joining forces for a pilot at The CW. Titled "Maine" (for now), the show will revolve around the staff and guests at an inn in Maine.
Schwahn would write and executive produce the series, with Abrams and Bryan Burk also serving as EPs.
Deadline compares the series to Schwahn's "One Tree Hill" and Abrams' "Felicity," so basically, we are so happy we might cry. After a nine-year run of "OTH," it's no surprise that The CW would want to stay in business with Schwahn, and "Felicity" was one of The WB's most critically acclaimed series.
We're already assembling our dream cast. It begins and ends with Scott Foley.
