The CW plan to reboot Roswell

It would seem that in a world devoid of idea The CW has turned to rebooting Roswell (which is scarily twenty years old next year!). On the plus side it has attached Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) to direct and Carina Adly MacKenzie (The Originals) to write the thing. Plec also will executive produce the pilot and will continue as executive producer via her My So-Called Company production banner if the pilot is ordered to series.

The original:

Apparently this new take on Roswell will have an immigration twist that reflects the realities of its location in a state bordering Mexico… After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

No word yet if Dido will be back to drop a theme tune on this one season wonder!
