Pretty Pictures From The CW’s Fall Series

May 20, 2009 12:01 PM

Meet the new troublemakers of “Melrose Place.”

The CW has released cast shots and episode photos of new fall shows “Melrose Place,” “Vampire Diaries” and “The Beautiful Life.”

Laura Leighton is back as Sydney for the new “Melrose Place” and, judging from the pictures, back to her old ways. Check out photos after the jump of her getting up close and personal with Shaun Sipos’ David and looking none too pleased with Ella, played by Katie Cassidy. The photos also offer a little peek at the title character itself—the new Melrose Place apartment complex.

The CW isn’t about to let HBO and Summit Entertainment have all the vampire fun. “Vampire Diaries,” from “Dawson’s Creek” creator Kevin Williamson, stars Nina Dobrev (“Degrassi: The Next Generation) as a girl torn between two vampire brothers, played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. (The CW’s count of former “Degrassi” stars is up to two now with “90210’s” Shenae Grimes and Dobrev.)

Looks like the show borrowed “Smallville’s” graveyard set in Vancouver, Canada. According to Mr. Williamson’s Twitter, the show was “going to Georgia to see if it can pass for Vancouver which passed for Virginia.”

There simply aren’t enough pretty, skinny, white people on The CW. Here’s some photos from “The Beautiful Life,” starring Sara Paxton, Mischa Barton and Corbin Bleu. Looking forward to the catfights and inevitable eating-disorder episode, which would lead nicely out of “America’s Next Top Model.”
