The CW has officially picked up the updated version of Melrose Place, the campy 1990s series revolving around a group of twentysomethings who live in a swanky L.A. apartment complex. The new version adheres to the same premise, but with a murder-mystery twist introduced in the pilot.
While the original series included an openly gay male character, this one includes a bisexual woman: Stylish publicist Ella, played by Katie Cassidy (Taken, Harper’s Island), who is in a casual relationship with fellow apartment-dweller David (Shaun Sipos).
Ella’s bisexuality will reportedly be revealed in the pilot via a kiss at a club. The casting call for the pilot included an “early 20’s, gorgeous, exotic model type who catches ‘Ella’s’ (Katie Cassidy) eye in a club and they share a passionate same sex kiss.”

It’s this time of the year again and the chances for Melrose Place getting picked up seem to be pretty good!
The CW is likely to give a ‘go ahead’ for two new pilots, the “Melrose Place” spin-off and the adaptation of LJane Smith’s novel series “Vampire Diaries”. Should the reports are true, then both series will be included in the Fall schedule.
BuddyTV has talked to the cast of Harper’s Island about what it was like to work on the show…
Meanwhile, Katie Cassidy, who portrays the bride, revealed how much anticipation the mystery held for all of them. “When we got the scripts, it was like Christmas morning,” she exclaimed. “We would sit there in the green room frantically trying to find out who’s going to go and what’s going to happen.”
I think you’ve noticed that things have been quiet around here…
I’m really busy with university, so I probably won’t be able to update for another few days!
I’m hoping to have the Harper’s Island screencaps up by Wednesday, and I will definitely be back at the weekend!
