“Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” executive producer Julie Plec is looking at her next project with The CW.
The writer and producer is developing “Rise” with writing team Chad Fiveash & James Stoteraux.
The drama, from Warner Bros TV and Plec’s My So-Called Company, is set in the aftermath of a terrorist attack, when martial law has been declared, and will follow a disparate group of people who start to uncover that the attack may have been a cover-up.
Fiveash and Stoteraux will write the script and executive produce with Plec.
The new project comes to the network, joining a series adaptation of “The Lost Boys” in the current development season, after president Mark Pedowitz revealed in-development projects including a “Friday the 13th” reboot and a post-apocalyptic take on “Little Women” were no longer being developed.
A series adaptation of Nicholas Sparks‘ “The Notebook,” however, is still being developed at The CW.
