Move over, Law & Order: Los Angeles: Michelle Trachtenberg is set to star in a new CW crime drama, which the Buffy alum will also develop and co-produce.
The actress has slapped her signature on a deal with the network to develop, produce and star in a procedural about a young criminology student “with a gift for profiling and a dark past,” Deadline.com inside snoops say. Ironically, Michelle, now 25, cut her teeth playing a pint-sized “criminal investigator” in the 1996 kids flick Harriet the Spy.
Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who first worked with Trachtenberg during her stint as Georgina Sparks on the primetime soap, will join the actress in producing the as-yet-titled program.
The show will premiere next fall.
