Reese Witherspoon, CW Network Team Up for "Great" Reimagining
Bringing a classic novel to modern-day television, Reese Witherspoon has signed on to produce a new series for the CW based on Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations."
The new script order is for a show titled "Expectations," which follows a small-town girl who moves to San Francisco to make her dreams come true. However, she finds out that making it in the big city isn't as easy as she thought. That is, until she receives an anonymous sum of money that makes it all a whole lot easier.
There's no word yet on when production will start, but it looks like Reese's company, Pacific Standards, has its hands full with new projects.
Just last week, Witherspoon's half-hour comedy project, "Wendy & Peter," was bought by Fox. The new show follows the lives of a mom named Wendy and a genius named Peter.
