The CW has tapped the offspring of another Hollywood royalty for a pilot. Maya Kazan, granddaughter of Oscar-winning director Elia Kazan, has joined Company Town. Written by Sera Gamble and directed by Taylor Hackford, the project chronicles the aftermath of a scandal at a Naval base in Virginia, which touches the lives of both civilians and military personnel in the area. The multigenerational, multi-class series centers around two early 20-something women — Krista (Gage Golightly) and Page — who grew up together, were once best friends, but now are on opposite sides of the Townie/Military divide. Kazan will play Krista’s friend Marla, a frustrated/wistful artist. Last year, the CW cast Meryl Streep’s daughter Mamie Gummer as the lead of Emily Owens, MD, while Gregory Peck’s grandson Ethan Peck co-stars in the pilot The Selection. Steve McQueen’s grandson Steven R. McQueen is on the CW’s hit series The Vampire Diaries. »
