So, after scoring a major hit (for the CW anyway) with LJSmith's The Vampire Diaries it appears that the CW is once again turning to LJSmith. This time they've ordered a script based on LJSmith's The Secret Circle. AWESOME! The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle were my favorites from Smith.
Ignoring the latter day The Vampire Diaries books from Smith, because I could barely read the first in the new trilogy, and therefore as far as I'm concerned The Vampire Diaries ended in 1992 with Dark Reunion.

Of course, this doesn't even mean The Secret Circle is picked up yet, it's not. Nor does it mean (if it gets picked up) that it would be as big for the CW as The Vampire Diaries, and honestly her Night World series (which I've never read) probably has the most potential to be as big as The Vampire Diaries the problem is that it might would come off looking like a The Vampire Diaries clone. So, yeah, while Night World might be a bigger draw, I'm glad the CW is considering going with The Secret Circle cause again it's almost my favorite LJSmith series.

For those who don't know what the effin hell The Secret Circle is - here goes:

The Secret Circle was originally a book trilogy by LJSmith published in and around 1992. The novels are: The Initiation, The Captive, and The Power.

Here's the blurb from the first book:

The Circle's Power has Lured Her Home...
Cassie must confront a shattering challenge: an ordeal that could cost her life or gain her more than she's ever imagined...
Charmed by the Secret Circle, she's initiated into the mysterious "in crowd," a coven of young witches whose power has controlled New Salem for three hundred years.
Hopelessly in love with the coven leader's boyfriend, Cassie risks falling prey to dark powers in order to have him. But if she does, her endless love could destroy the coven, New Salem, and her!
...And She Will Emerge the Leader or Perish!


Now before I shut up about this, at least for now, I am totally aware that the series won't translate any closer to the books then The Vampire Diaries has. It could, but isn't likely. However, The Vampire Diaries hasn't been completely off the rails from the book series either, so the blurb from the first The Secret Circle book probably gives a great idea of how the series will at least start.
