Now this is a powerhouse team. CW has placed a script order for a pilot called Copeland Prep, with a whole bunch of familiar names on board. Most notably, author Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) has signed on to write the script and executive produce. Joining him as executive producer is Josh Schwartz (Chuck) and his Fake Empire company. Finally, Catherine Hardwicke (director of Twilight and Red Riding Hood) will act as an "executive consultant" on the project.

Copeland Prep (yes, the title is a little obvious) is set in an elite college-prep school where the competition is so fierce, the students are literally turning into monsters.
