The CW has given the go-ahead to three more drama pilots, including one from J.J. Abrams, reports Deadline.com.

The Abrams project is called "Shelter" and is written by "One Tree Hill" creator and showrunner Mark Schwahn, the story notes. The drama is set at a New England summer resort where the staff focuses on the needs of their guests while also dealing with their own romances and problems, the piece adds. It marks Abrams’ first project for the CW.

"The Selection," based on a series of books by Kiera Cass, is set three centuries in the future and tracks a poor woman who is chosen in a lottery to participate in a competition to become the next queen of a troubled country, the piece says.

"Joey Dakota" is about a filmmaker who travels back to the 1990s and falls in love with the subject of her film, the story says. It’s called a romantic musical and is based on an Israeli half-hour series called "Danny Hollywood," the piece adds.
