Executive producers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain are out as executive producers of The Secret Circle, CW's witchcraft pilot based on the novel by Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith. More after the jump.
Craft and Fain have opted to depart The Secret Circle to focus on developing new properties under a contract with Warner Bros. Television. Warner Bros. promises the split was amicable - they decided that SC was getting too crowded. The producing pair will still serve as consulting producers on Vampire Diaries.
With Craft and Fain leaving, does Secret Circle stand a chance? It had all the makings to be Vampire Diaries 2.0. Same production company, same executives, same network, source material from the same author. I guess we won't know until fall.
