I am so excited! Paul is scheduled for a new project on CBS All Access … thanks to TV Line for the news.

Paul Wesley is sinking his teeth into a new TV role: The Vampire Diaries alum has joined the cast of the upcoming CBS All Access thriller Tell Me a Story, according to our sister site Deadline, reuniting with TVD executive producer Kevin Williamson.

The dark fairy tale thriller, which earned a straight-to-series order from CBS’ streaming service last November, takes classic children’s tales like “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Three Little Pigs” and gives them a modern twist, reimagining them on the gritty streets of New York City. Wesley will play Eddie, a drug dealer and thief struggling with his own addictions. Williamson serves as creator, as well as an EP.

The cast also includes Sex and the City veteran Kim Cattrall and American Crime Story‘s Billy Magnussen. Plus, Wesley isn’t the only Williamson alum in the ensemble: The Originals‘ Danielle Campbell will star alongside him as Kayla, a girl struggling with the recent death of her mother.

Wesley, of course, starred as vampire Stefan on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, which wrapped up its eight-season run last year. Since then, he’s moved behind the camera, directing a Season 2 episode of Freeform’s Shadowhunters.

Oct 12, 2017   Ali   Comments Off on Freeform Developing ‘Tapped’ Drama From ‘PLL’s Marlene King & ‘TVD’s Paul Wesley Citizen Media, Tapped

Deadline shares that Paul has joined I. Marlene King on a new Freeform series.

Former The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has teamed with Pretty Little Liars developer/showrunner I. Marlene King for Tapped, a drama series project, which has been set up at Freeform.

Written by Thomas Brandon based on the unpublished memoir by Andrew Shaffer (How To Survive A Sharknado), Tapped is described as The Social Network meets Pretty Little Liars. It centers around three grad students who create a hookup app called Tapped that goes viral and turns the students into overnight millionaires, but also unleashes unwitting dangers into the world that the creators must try to understand and control.

King executive produces through her Long Lake Media alongside Wesley and Bob Levy via Citizen Media. Brandon is co-executive producer. Warner Horizon Scripted Television, where both King and Wesley are under overall deals, is the studio.

King developed, executive produced and ran Freeform’s signature drama Pretty Little Liars which wrapped its seven-season run last spring. She’s currently shepherding the Pretty Little Liars’ spinoff The Perfectionists, which received a pilot order at the cable network, along with the Freeform series Famous In Love.

Brandon is an LA-based screenwriter and director who has done several short films, a produced playwright and former Nicholl Fellowship semi-finalist. He developed Transience at the CW last season.

Humorist and author Shaffer penned How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters and the Fifty Shades of Grey parody, Fifty Shames of Earl Grey under the pen name Fanny Merkin.

Levy was an executive producer on The Vampire Diaries before teaming with Wesley at Citizen Media. Tapped reunites Levy with King as he also previously served as an executive producer on PLL.

Wesley starred as Stefan Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries. He began directing The Vampire Diaries in its fifth season and began produced the series at the start of season 8. He also directed an episode of Shadowhunters for Freeform.

This is Citizen Media’s second project at Freeform, along with a Shanghai drama written by Oanh Ly. The company is repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Jackoway Tyerman. Long Lake Media is repped by WME. Brandon is repped by Paradigm and Lee Stobby Entertainment.

Jul 13, 2017   Ali   Comments Off on Shadowhunters Cast Gushes About Paul Wesley’s Directorial Debut Shadowhunters, Video

The cast of Shadowhunters shares with TV Guide about working with Paul as a director.

If you were worried about Paul Wesley’s first directorial debut on a show that he didn’t happen to star in, the cast of Shadowhunters is here to put your mind at ease.

Wesley’s episode of Shadowhunters, which airs July 17, has a whole lot of magic, vampire drama and even a few werewolves, which are all right up Paul Wesley’s alley. And though he may not have been as familiar with the show as he obviously was with The Vampire Diaries, it sounds like he took to it like a fish to water.

“He gets it,” Dominic Sherwood says. “He gets the dangers and the powers and the abilities that we have. He understands all of that, so it’s really great to work with someone who has this kind of database of knowledge already.”

Most directors might be intimidated by the sheer amount of CGI and visual effects necessary to make an episode of Shadowhunters — not to mention all the logistics that go into fight scenes between supernatural creatures — but everyone knew Wesley could handle that right off the bat thanks to his eight years of experience.

“It was really cool to work with an actor that was directing that you knew was on a series, so he knew how TV worked,” Alberto Rosende (fellow TV vampire) says. “What he needed, what he didn’t need and what he could get — that was the cool thing, he could see what he could push.”

Shadowhunters airs Mondays at 8/7c on Freeform.

Jul 13, 2017   Ali   Comments Off on Paul Wesley Looks Back on TVD Finale, Calls Stefan’s Ending ‘Poetic Justice’ Vampire Diaries

TVLine spoke with Paul on the ending of The Vampire Diaries and how he feels with the end of Stefan’s story.

It’s been more than four months since The Vampire Diaries wrapped its eight-season run on The CW, and some people are still angry about the way things ended for Stefan Salvatore — but his portrayer, Paul Wesley, isn’t one of them.

“It was something I was really hoping for,” Wesley tells TVLine of Stefan’s untimely demise, which came less than 24 hours after he and Caroline Forbes became husband and wife. “I’d put in a good word, because I felt it needed end that way. I thought he really needed to die.”

Unlike many of the fans who forgave Stefan for his (countless) transgressions over the years — because, come on, it’s a show about vampires! — Wesley isn’t about to let his character off so easily.

“It was important poetic justice for all the bad things he’d done,” Wesley continues. “He was a murderer ultimately. He’d found so much redemption, yet was still tormented. For me, him making that ultimate sacrifice was a great way to say goodbye.”

Wesley’s line of thinking certainly lines up with that of showrunner Julie Plec, who had this to say about Stefan’s death back in March: “When we landed on the idea of Caroline needing to leave [Stefan] behind in honor of protecting her family, and then him needing to leave her behind in honor of protecting his, it felt somehow like the responsible outcome of a responsible relationship.”
