Memo to Showrunner Shonda Rhimes: Watch your back! Because this fall, a new name is thisclose to usurping your crown as “Hollywood’s Hardest Worker.” Meet Julie Plec! Responsible for spearheading three hit (or soon-to-be hit) CW shows this fall (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, THE ORIGINALS and THE TOMORROW PEOPLE), we think it goes without saying that Plec has quite the gargantuan task ahead of her. So, how exactly does she plan on keeping all three balls in the air while managing to maintain the storytelling success that has been the hallmark of the past few seasons of the mother ship (Read: TVD)? See for yourself, after the jump.
