Unearthly by Cynthia Hand is in development at The CW from Carol Mendelsohn Productions. Also listed is The Hollows by Kim Harrison.
Mendelsohn Productions has sold several new shows to various networks recently. The interesting part is a majority of the production company’s projects are based on books.
At the CW, Carol Mendelsohn Prods is behind Unearthly, a supernatural drama based on the book by Cynthia Hand and written by Hellcats creator Kevin Murphy, and The Hollows, based on the book series by Kim Harrison and penned by Jordan Hawley (Smallville).
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand is not your typical angel tale. Clara Gardner is a quarter-angel. She lives with her mom and brother in California until she starts to receive visions of her divine purpose involving a handsome young man, a forest fire, and sadness. The angels in this story are not your typical heavenly type and I think this will make an interesting show for the CW. It will fit in nicely with the vampires and witches already established there.
The Hollows by Kim Harrington is about a witch who also happens to be a bounty hunter and doesn’t play by the rules. Deciding to buck the system Rachel is on the run with a live vampire. The premise definitely has potential with its supernatural elements and strong heroine.
