Condé Nast Editors Go Hollywood

(Via ABC Family)

We’re not sure how many of you out there watch shows targeted toward teenagers, but if you’ve got room for one more in addition to “The Vampire Diaries,” and want to see some editors do some acting, you should check out “Jane by Design.” The ABC Family series premiers in January, and will feature appearances by several Condé Nast editors, including Stefano Tonchi, Amy Astley and Brandon Holley.

WWD reports that the partnership — which was hatched because Lynn Hirschberg, W’s Editor-at-Large, is good friends with “Jane by Design’s” producer — will benefit Lucky and ABC Family, because the network has a buy in the magazine and on its website.

“Jane by Design” is about a teenager who is mistaken for an adult and gets a job in a fashion powerhouse, thus forcing her to juggle her school life and career, all while protecting her true identity. Sounds about as realistic as “The Vampire Diaries.” Enjoy.
