'90210' and 'Vampire Diaries' Stars Join 'Heavenly' CW Pilot
How many supernatural TV shows is enough? It seems, according to the CW, that two is not the answer. The network already has two supernatural TV shows in "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural," but are working on a new pilot called "Heavenly" as well.
The show just gained two familiar cast members in Lauren Cohan and Ryan Eggold who have worked on "The Vampire Diaries" and "90210." It's not unusual for a network to stick with actors they know, so the move makes sense. The jump to "Heavenly" shouldn't be too hard for Cohan, who has not only appeared on "The Vampire Diaries" but also on "Supernatural."
"Heavenly" will follow Lily (played by Cohan), a woman who works at a legal aid clinic. Her co-worker is an angel in human form, and the two work together on each case: as Lily tries to free her clients from jail, the angel tries to save their souls.
Eggold will reportedly play a priest.
It might seem like the CW is saturating their channel with too many supernatural shows, but as long as people keep watching, they'll probably keep making them. Plus, with "Heavenly" steering away from vampires and witches (ground covered by "The Vampire Diaries" and its upcoming spin-off "The Secret Circle"), it's at least a new take on the supernatural world.
