The CW has greenlit the pilot “How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls,” based on the book by Zoey Dean, reports Variety. Alloy Entertainment, which published the “Gossip Girl” books that led to this season’s CW show, is also behind the “Filthy Rich Girls” franchise.
Rina Mimoun (“Pushing Daisies”) will write and executive produce the pilot, while Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Bob Levy will also executive produce.
“Filthy Rich Girls” revolves around a young woman who’s fired from her job as the assistant at a glossy tabloid mag. She’s then hired to serve as a live-in tutor and life coach for the teen granddaughters of a cosmetics magnate. The show’s lead must win over the girls while navigating Palm Beach’s high society and dealing with her own personal issues.
Dean is also the author of “The A-List” series of New York Times bestsellers, which are in development for a feature adaptation at Universal.
