Say what you will about CW, they certainly have a vision.I can only imagine their casting sessions. “Go find some hot people to fill out the casts of our new shows. Smallville has ended, so those people are available now, that’s obviously a really good place to start. Oh and find me some non-threatening black people so we can pepper each show with one or two of them for ‘diversity’. Oh yes! We are building a show around Meryl Streeps daughter, Emily Owens, M.D. She looks 'relatable'. You know, in what the CW considers ‘relatable,’ so we need to cast a hot guy who doesn’t own many shirts as distraction. The guy that was Green Arrow on Smallville comes to mind and we know he’s not busy because we gave that role to someone else. And don’t get any funny ideas about casting someone busted for our Beauty and the Beast remake! We will ugly him up with a scratch!”
Meryl Streep's daughter, Mamie Gummar, is on the CW. How did this happen?

CW's description: After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was.
CW's description: (Adorable) Kristen Kreuk portrays Detective Catherine Chandler is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective(ONLY on the CW!). Several years earlier, Catherine witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Catherine would have been killed too, but someone – or something – saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins…it was human. Years have passed, and Catherine is a strong, confident, capable police officer, working alongside her equally talented partner, Tess. While investigating a murder, Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller, who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002.
CW’s description: At long last, Emily Owens feels like she is an actual grown-up. She can finally put her high school days as the geeky-girl-with-flop-sweats behind her; she’s graduated from medical school and is now a first-year intern at Denver Memorial Hospital, where she’ll have the chance to work with world-famous cardiologist Dr. Gina Beckett – and where, not-so-coincidentally, her med-school crush Will Rider is also an intern.
The Carrie Diaries, CW's description: It's 1984, and life isn't easy for 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw (Robb). Since their mother passed away, Carrie's younger sister Dorritt is more rebellious than ever, and their father Tom is overwhelmed with the responsibility of suddenly having to care for two teenage girls on his own. Carrie's friends -- sweet, geeky Mouse, sarcastic and self-assured Maggie and sensitive Walt -- make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn't doing much to take her mind off her troubles.
