Julie Plec to Develop New Drama ‘Rise’ at CW

“Vampire Diaries” boss will executive produce with writing team of Chad Fiveash & James Stoteraux

“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.
