Considering how big The Hunger Games phenomenon is, it was only a matter of time before the CW cashed in on its success.
According to the new string of pilot titles for The CW network, a Hunger Games doppelganger television show called The Selection and it will be starring Scream 4 star Aimee Teegarden and will be added to the fall lineup.
More details after the jump!
According to Perez Hilton, the show is about a girl (Teegarden) who lives in a Panem-esque society and is chosen to enter an intense competition to marry a prince!
Like The Hunger Games, the show is based off a series of books by
poseur writer Kiera Cass and the books will be conveniently coming out by April 24th.
Sounds like a shady idea to us at Gossip Overload, but considering the success of Twilight rip-off The Vampire Diaries, The Selection might be be worth the watch!
So what do you guys think of this news? Do you think Aimee Teegarden will make the perfect TV Katniss-like character? Let us know in the comment section below?
