‘Lost Boys’ Pilot Ordered by The CW
The Lost Boys spin-off was one of four pilots picked up just yesterday by the network. Deadline reports that the CW had originally developed a series based on the 1987 classic movie back in 2016, but it never went to pilot.
The series will be produced by Heather Mitchell (who is also writing for the series), Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz, Bill Bindley and Rebecca Franko.
Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.
This pilot comes along with a Riverdale spinoff, Jane the Novella, and a currently untitled Nancy Drew project.
