Beauty Kristin Kreuk Gets Smallville Comfort
The actors and executive producers on the CW are a tightly knit group who never seem able to leave the network, which can be a blessing and a curse. Kristin Kreuk spent eight years on Smallville and has the potential to spend a few more years on the new CW series Beauty and the Beast. She’ll always have a home on the CW, but she’s not really branching out. But she’s not the only person seemingly stuck at the network, and because of that all these talented people get to work together constantly. In fact, Kreuk is reuniting with the Smallville showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peterson and Souders will be co-showrunners alongside current Beauty and the Beast writers/executive producers Jennifer Levin and Sherri Cooper. Peterson and Souders are a good example of not being able to escape the CW. This last year they were consultant producers for The Secret Circle, which has now been canceled. Moving them to Beauty and the Beast is a good move for the freshman show considering their experience having been the showrunners of Smallville for nine years. Having worked with Kreuk so long, they know how to write for her and can hopefully craft a great show around her.
Beauty and the Beast is a modern day retelling of the classic fairytale, but with a crime procedural twist. Oddly enough, this isn’t the first series to try this approach, as there was a series in the ‘80s of the same name that Beauty and the Beast was based on. The similarities are supposed to be vague, but the idea seems to be the same: Catherine Chandler (Kreuk) is attacked and saved by a mysterious man/creature (Jay Ryan) and ends up falling in love with him. At first impression, this seems like a terrible idea, but the more I dwell on it the more I want to see what they plan to do with this premise. It could turn out better than the basic idea would allow it to appear.
