It’s a new twist in the odyssey of The CW’s Hunger Games-esque project The Selection.

The sci-fi fairy tale is getting another shot at a happy ending. After originally being developed for this season, receiving a pilot order last year, getting shelved and then being rewritten, The Selection has just received a greenlight for a second pilot. Based on a novel by Kiera Cass, The Selection was dubbed “The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor.” It’s the story of a young girl named America Singer (arguably an even lamer name than Katniss Everdeen) and is set in an impoverished post-apocalyptic North America. »
