Too many witches in the brew for Secret Circle showrunner Kevin Williamson. His revised pilot script has cut the coven down from seven to six. It's no surprise though, Williamson is known for well developed characters and I'm sure his reasons were for the good of this highly anticipated CW pilot. The Secret Circle's original script, authored by Andrew Miller, included Doug. He was a third string quarterback that got abruptly promoted to starting quarterback, thanks to the covens 'assistance'.
Sources confirm to Zap2it exclusively that the character Doug Henderson has been removed from the CW pilot.
