Can't get enough of The Hunger Games? The CW thought you might say that. The young-skewing network is hoping that Katniss and Co.'s success at the box office (more than $300 million, and counting, in the U.S. alone) will translate to interest in The Selection, a pilot in contention for fall. Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden stars as a girl chosen to enter a fierce competition to marry the prince of a war-torn society.
Ethan Peck has been cast in the CW pilot The Selection, Deadline reports.
Set 300 years in the future, the project is about a young woman named America (Friday Nights Lights alum Aimee Teegarden) who is chosen via lottery to participate in a competition to find the next queen. Peck will play Prince Maxon, whom America is reluctantly vying to marry.
