In the wake of Melrose Place's too-early demise (sad face), fans of The CW are on the search for a new guilty pleasure show. Of course, Hellcats isn't exactly similar when it comes to premise or plotlines, but comparable scandal, sexy-time, and cat-fighting drama is bound to ensue. Find out more about the upcoming show, produced by Tom Welling, below:
Airs: Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW (Premieres September 8)
Notable Stars: Ashley Tisdale, Aly Michalka
Synopsis: Marti Perkins' plan was to get through Lancer University on her scholarship, go to law school, and leave Memphis and her hard-drinking mother behind to start a new life as an attorney. Instead, Marti's scholarship gets cancelled and her mother "forgets" to tell her. Out of options, Marti finds herself fighting for a spot on the Hellcats -- Lancer's legendary cheer squad -- and for the scholarship that comes with it.
Why Watch? Well, I've seen the pilot. And as a self-proclaimed CW cynic, I'm in no position to like everything that the network pops out, but even I have to admit that it's pretty entertaining. The acting is surprisingly not terrible (amazing, right?), there's plenty of Bring It On-like choreography, dancing, and stunting action, and and as long as you're willing to not take it too seriously, you may have found your next fall guilty pleasure indeed!
