'Secret Circle' Executive Producer Richard Hatem Exits CW Series

Exclusive: Exactly two months after he joined the upcoming CW drama series The Secret Circle as an executive producer, Richard Hatem has been let go for creative differences. Executive producer Kevin Williamson, who came on board the project in February and rewrote the original script by Andrew Miller, is running the series, which he executive produces with Miller and Alloys Entertainment's Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. "Kevin has a vision, and they just didn't see eye-to-eye creatively," a source close to the show said. I understand that Hatem is staying in business with Secret Circle producer Warner Bros TV through a development arrangement, which is now being finalized. It is not clear whether Hatem will be replaced on Secret Circle. Before him, there were two other writing executive producers, Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, who had originally developed the project with Miller, but they departed in March after the Williamson's

Lauren Cohan Snags Female Lead in The CW’s Heavenly New Pilot

  • ScifiMafia
Lauren Cohan is returning to the CW with the lead female role in Heavenly, a new pilot about a dedicated San Francisco attorney and a former angel who have paired up to “save the futures” of the people they help. Cohan will play Lily DeMarco, “a deceptively young and friendly” young attorney at a legal aid clinic. Her cohort is Dashiel Coffee (played by Ben Aldridge of Lark Rise to Candleford), a “former angel only recently turned human” who tries to save the souls of those Lily saves in court.

Cohan has guest starred as broker/thief of supernatural objects, Bela Talbot, in the CW’s Supernatural and the vampire, Rose, in the CW’s The Vampire Diaries. She is currently guest starring in NBC’s Chuck as Vivian McArthur, baddie Volkoff’s (Timothy Dalton) estranged daughter.

CW Developing Angelic Legal Drama Heavenly

Deadline are reporting that The CW have a pilot in development called Heavenly, about a San Francisco attorney called Lily DeMarco (The Vampire DiariesLauren Cohan) who’s partnered by an angel-turned-human Dashiell Coffee (Lark Rise To Candleford’s Ben Aldridge), to save people from jail and their souls from hell.

They are joined by Deputy District Attorney Sasha Nouri (Melissa & George’s Elizabeth Ho) and guided by pastor Owen Moretti (90210′s Ryan Eggold.) The pilot is being written by Richard Hatem (Supernatural, The Dead Zone).

Heavenly has broad similarities to the currently in-development British series Eternal Law, from the co-creators of Life On Mars, which also concerns angels sent to Earth to become lawyers. Coincidence, I’m sure, but does the idea of angels tackling a profession commonly linked to demons appeal to you? It seems to be what’s in vogue just now…

Heavenly: Lauren Cohan Cast as Lead

The CW has quite a few pilots in development for next season.  One of them is a show called Heavenly.  Deadline reports that Lauren Cohan has been cast as the female lead in the pilot.

Cohan should be recognizable to CW fans.  She was a recurring character in season 3 of Supernatural and then appeared in several episodes of The Vampire Diaries this season.

Cohan will be playing Lily in Heavenly, a young attorney who teams up with a former angel, Dashiel Coffee (played by Ben Aldridge), who's been recently turned human.  The two of them will work together on cases for a legal aid clinic.  If you watch Supernatural, then think of Heavenly as the Castiel show (if he was made human), but with lawyers.  Chances are Dashiel will have the whole "fish out of water" personality thing going on, what with being an angel for so long.  90210's Ryan Eggold
