Kiera Cass’ ‘The Selection’ Greenlit for TV Pilot

The CW will shoot a pilot episode for a TV adaptation of Kiera Cass‘ not-yet-published novel, The Selection. This young-adult dystopian title has been compared to The Hunger Games and will be released on April 24th.

So far, five actors have been cast: Aimee Teegarden will play lead heroine America Singer. Ethan Peck will play love interest Prince Maxon. Sean Patrick Thomas will play a royal advisor named Sylvan. Leonor Varela will play Queen Amberly. Martin Donovan will play King Clarkson.

Here’s more from Deadline: “Based on the upcoming series of books by Kiera Cass, The Selection is described as an epic romance set 300 years in the future. Written by Elizabeth Craft & Sarah Fain and directed by Mark Piznarski, it centers on America Singer (Aimee Teegarden), a poor young woman who is chosen by lottery to participate in a competition to marry Prince Maxon (Ethan Peck) and become the next queen of a war-torn nation at a crossroads.”
