Ellis, Hardwicke Enroll At “Copeland Prep”

“American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis, “Gossip Girl” and “Hart of Dixie” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke are all teaming up for the supernatural drama series “Copeland Prep” at Warner Bros. Television and The CW says The Live Feed.

The show revolves around a premier secondary school so fiercely competitive that it’s turning its students into monsters — literally — and spreading the disturbing ramifications throughout the town.

Ellis will pen the script and executive produce alongside Schwartz, Savage and their Fake Empire cohorts Len Goldstein and Nicky Weinstock. Hardwicke is on board as an executive consultant on the project.
