Michelle Trachtenberg Lands Her Own CW Show


Former Gossip Girl and Buffy’s little sis Michelle Trachtenberg is getting her own series on the CW. She’ll be both starring in and executive producing the still untitled hourlong drama.

Her rep tells EOnline, “Trachtenberg has joined forces with producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage under their shingle Fake Empire for this one hour drama. They pitched Michelle’s idea to Warner Brothers Studio, [which] bought the pitch right then and there, and immediately took it to the CW, [which] bought it in the room.”

So what’s the show about? Apparently Michelle will play “a young criminology student with a dark past and a knack for profiling suspects.”

So what do you think about Michelle getting a new show? The criminology student part sounds a bit like Veronica Mars, right? Let me know what you think in the comments.
