Move over ‘Gossip Girl.’ You’re getting some company.

The CW has picked up ‘Surviving the Filthy Rich,’ a drama adaptation of the Zoey Dean novel ‘How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls.’ The story centers on a Yale graduate who has moved to Manhattan, but nothing is going as planned. When her job at a tabloid magazine turns sour, she accepts a position working for infamous teenage twins who are filthy rich, and unmarketable, as far as their grandmother and upper-echelon colleges are concerned. Her challenge? Get them into an A-list university. Her reward? Ample pay, plus a significant check that will wipe out her hefty college loans.

Created by Rina Mimoun, executive producer of ‘Everwood,’ the series seems like an obvious companion for Serena and the gang.
