The way things are going, The CW might as well just change its name to The Supernatural Channel. What with "The Vampire Diaries" already running and the upcoming "Arrow," things are turning into a regular vampire/superhero fest. And then there's "Beauty and the Beast," one of The CW's new shows for the next season.
Believe it or not, you might be seeing not one but TWO "Beauty and the Beast" TV series later this year, as ABC has just bought a pilot. The CW is planning a pilot as well, putting it in a more modern setting. Which one will be better? Is either a particularly good idea?
First it was "Snow White" and the battle of the competing films between Lilly Collins and Kristen Stewart. Now we've got a similar battle brewing with "Beauty and the Beast," as both The CW and ABC are reportedly developing their own versions of the classic tale as a TV series.
