New Project Described as 'The X-Files meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer' (and you couldn't have thought of this?)

"The Vampire Diaries" may get a companion series, with its co-creator and executive producer Kevin Williamson working on the new project, reports.

The untitled project is described as "The X-Files" meets "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," with a group of people investigating the paranormal, the story says.

The project is in the early stages of development at Warner Bros. TV and "Vampire Diaries" co-creator and executive producer Julie Plec is in discussions to co-write with Williamson, the story says. It's not clear whether the drama would be part of the next pilot season, the article adds.
