Brittany Robertson Cast in SECRET CIRCLE

Brittany Robertson

Good news, bad news.

EW.com reports that Brittany Robertson has been cast in The CW’s pilot SECRET CIRCLE, which is based on a series of books by author L.J. Smith about a young woman who moves to a new town and discovers not only is she a witch and part of a secret coven, but also the key that will unlock a centuries-old battle of good versus evil. And it’s likely that she will play one of the leads of the show – either Cassie, the female lead or Diana, leader of the coven and Cassie’s best friend.

However despite the casting, Secret Circle will be in second position to acquire Robertson’s acting talents. Secret Circle will be competing with her most recent series, The CW’s Life Unexpected, for a time slot in the network’s May schedule. When The CW elected not to pick up the back-nine episodes of the family drama, most assumed the season finale in January was the series finale. In theory, this may be true; but Life Unexpected has not yet been officially cancelled. If renewed, Robertson first has obligations toward Life Unexpected.

Knowing the unpredictability of the development season, perhaps we can see Robertson in both Secret Circle and Life Unexpected on The CW lineup!

Secret Circle comes from Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with Kevin Williamson as executive producer.
