10 shocking pilot season rejects: Why they didn't make it

SELECTION-CASS

(Page 3 of 10)

THE SELECTION (The CW)
Pitch: Set 300 years in the future, an epic romance centering on a working class young woman chosen by lottery to participate in a competition with 25 other women for the Royal Prince’s hand to become the nation’s next queen. Based on the book by Kiera Cass.
Why It Should Have Worked: This is the second time in two years The CW has shot a pilot for The Selection. So the network really wanted to make this work.
Why It Didnt: We’re hearing this version was “1,000 times better” than the first. The CW has a very limited number of slots and the other drama pilots that were picked up were considered stronger. Part of the problem was Selection is slightly similar to historical soap Reign, which executives liked better (“It’s Game of Thrones for chicks,” as one put it).
