Teen Vampire Drama Coming to the CW

Well, it was bound to happen eventually: The CW has ordered a drama pilot based on a series of vampire novels for teens that have enjoyed a resurgence thanks in part to the success of Twilight.

The Vampire Diaries novels — which were published by Alloy, the same company that brought Gossip Girl into the world — focus on a mortal named Elena, who was the girl who could have any boy she wanted until she met two vampire brothers. One brother, Stefan, is described as "brooding and mysterious" and capable of resisting Elena's charms, while Damon is dangerous, driven by a desire for revenge, and "would kill" to have Elena.

Kevin Williamson, the mastermind behind Dawson's Creek (and, um, Hidden Palms), wrote the script for the pilot.

Hey, just the other day, I made up a fake teen vampire TV show and a lot of you thought it had to be real — clearly, it was just a matter of time. Could you picture young vamps in love steaming up the CW come Fall? And have any of you read these books?
