The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: New Original Spin Off Was A No-brainer


CW President, Mark Pedowitz, spoiled at the TCA panel about how the decision to spin off the network's biggest hit, The Vampire Diaries, was literally a 'no-brainer'.

"I'm a big believer if you have something that is working and you can incubate it and find a way to get it on the air, it's a good way to get pilots done," Pedowitz said of the upcoming Vampire Diaries spin-off Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter previews.

The back door pilot for The Originals will air as an episode of The Vampire Diaries on April 25th and will focus on Klaus~Joseph Moran and the Original family in New Orleans.

"Klaus was the founding father of New Orleans, and the show is set in that venue," Pedowitz said. "Klaus is just a great character and the Original Family has such dysfunctional family dynamics. We felt it was a great way to go to take the show."
