The much buzzed about Gossip Girl spinoff has been given the go-ahead -- and that's not even the best news.
The most exciting part (to me, anyway) is that it takes place in my favorite decade -- the 1980s -- which means the music and the clothes will be just fabulous.
The plot will center around Serena's mom, Lily van der Woodsen (played on GG by Kelly Rutherford), and will tell the story of how she came to be who she is today -- and how she ultimately meets Rufus Humphrey.
"Used to being a 'have,' attending a wealthy Montecito boarding school and living the high life, Lily is now forced into being a 'have not,' living deep in the Valley she once made fun of, and going to public school," a Warner Bros. statement read.
"Caught between two worlds, Lily dives into the fast-paced Sunset Strip and the Hollywood lifestyle of the '80s, journeying over the hill to a world of wealth and excess that used to be her own."
The pilot will be shown at as the May 11 episode of Gossip Girl. Will you be watching?
