LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Kids cable channel The N, which soon will be rebranded TeenNick, has optioned the rights to “Catwalk,” the second book series from “The Cheetah Girls” author Deborah Gregory, for a potential TV series.
“Catwalk” revolves around four best friends at Manhattan’s Fashion International High School who compete in a high-stakes designer competition. Gregory, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and a former model, is set to co-write the pilot script with veteran writer Jacob Epstein (“Without a Trace”). The second book in the “Catwalk” series, “Catwalk: Strike a Pose,” will be released September 8.
At Disney Channel, the “Cheetah Girls” franchise spawned hit TV movies starring Raven-Symone (on which Gregory was a writer-producer), a chart-topping soundtrack and video games.
