‘To Be Or Not To Be.’ seems to be a question that CW have been pondering for some time and after much thought and contemplation those fiendish executives have decided it be cool to make a new television show for young viewers titled ‘Young Shakespeare Vs Witches’.
THR is reporting that Mark Harmon (the actor from NCIS) is producing Shakespeare’s Sisters, a series for the CW that will meld “the world of Shakespeare with Game of Thrones.” Alas poor Yorick. We’re doomed.
“Described as a tale of black magic, romance and revenge, the drama is set in 1590s London and chronicles a young Will Shakespeare’s rise to prominence as he finds himself caught in a deadly conflict among three witches and the most powerful woman in the world, Queen Elizabeth.”
Scott Sullivan (NCIS: Los Angeles) is writing the script, and Jane the Virgin producer and director Brad Silberling will also executive produce and direct.
To my mind this is one of those shows that can go two ways. It will either be really good and get cancelled or be really bad and run and run for years.
I’d personally like to see a series about Abe Lincoln slaying vampires.
