CW has released a :30 promo and a little more than a minute of REIGN, the teen Mary, Queen of Scots soap that will have the showcase spot on its schedule next fall, Thursday 9PM after The Vampire Diaries. Here’s what we’ve got:
Well, there’s Mary all right, and there’s Francis, whom she knew as a child and now wants to know better. And there are some presumably scheming adults, one of them Francis’s mother, and the other a guy who may be able to see the future, or may just make dour pronouncements. Nothing here suggests a close fit with Vampire Diaries–but then again, there’s almost nothing here.
