Fear not, fans of Smallville, because if for some reason the show does not get picked up for another season (extremely unlikely) you can get your fill of Tom Welling another way – as a producer? Yep, I can’t believe it either, but sure looks that way as The CW has picked up the Tom Welling produced pilot, Hellcats.
Hellcats is an hour-long dramedy about competitive college cheerleaders. It’s being described as Election meets Bring it On. Hmmm… not exactly what I’d expect to come from someone who's played Clark Kent for nine seasons. Also, doesn’t really sound like that good of a show concept.
No need to worry though, because if Mr. Welling’s series doesn’t seem to be your cup of tea you can always tune into the Hayden Panettiere produced series, HMS, about a team of medical students at Harvard. (HMS = Harvard Medical School)
If that still doesn’t fit your fancy (not really sure if that’s a real saying or if I made it up, but we’ll run with it) then you can always look forward to Betwixt, which is about changelings that save humans from evil? (Yeah, I’m not sure what I just said either, but that’s what it is.)
All this news of poor-sounding projects from The CW really has me quite perturbed. I thought for once that The CW was slowly making a name for itself instead of being known as “what became of UPN and WB." With Smallville, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries and their new series, Life Unexpected, I would have thought that they’d want to add to their success… guess not.
So, when all of these shows premiere this fall, which ones will you be turning into?
Expect to see the Tom Welling produced Hellcats this fall on The CW, even if it is for a short time.
