WHO’S WHO: Your Next Teen People cover girls and boys include Blake Lively (THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS), Leighton Meester (SURFACE), Chace Crawford (THE COVENANT), Taylor Momsen (SPY KIDS 2) and Penn Badgley (JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE). GOSSIP GIRL also features the obligatory parental units (who naturally look as if they just stepped out of college themselves) including Kelly Rutherford (MELROSE PLACE) and Matthew Settle (BROTHERS AND SISTERS).
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: GOSSIP GIRL follows the lives of a group of priveleged prep school Manhattan teens.
THE GOOD: Umm… what did you miss? Privileged Prep school teens. Oh wait, they’re HOT!
THE BAD: Having just finished spending four seasons in THE OC with an eerily similar group of rich kids with ‘problems’, is GOSSIP GIRL a little too been-their-done that? (doubtful!)

Please note: This is not a review, just a first impression. The pilot that was sent to theTVaddict.com is by no means final and many things can and will change between now and when the show actually premieres in September
