Back near the end of January we reported that The CW’s pilot for The Selection had been green lighted. This book-turned-television pilot was cast early last year and filmed in October, but failed to resonate with testing audiences. It was given a new rewrite on the script, a new director, and a new leading lady.
Previously cast actors Sean Patrick Thomas (Save the Last Dance) and Peta Sergeant (best known for her lead role in the Australian television series Satisfaction) will be reprising their roles as Sylvan Santos and Gaia Woods.
The former lead Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights) will be replaced by Yael Grobglas to play America Singer, according to Deadline, and though she is a virtual unknown in the U.S. she has played the lead in the Israeli series Tanuhi (Give It A Rest).
Here’s the book synopsis for The Selection.
