Both Freshman Dramas Earn Back Nine Episode Orders

October 22, 2010 (Burbank, California) - The CW Network gave full season, back nine episode orders to both of its freshman hits "Hellcats" and "Nikita," as well as "One Tree Hill," now in its eighth season, it was announced today by Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, The CW.

"This fall, The CW made several strategic scheduling moves, including adding two of the most buzzed-about new series, 'Hellcats' and 'Nikita,' to our line-up, and we're thrilled that they've paid off for us," said Ostroff. "By giving our two freshman series and proven performer 'One Tree Hill' full orders, we'll be able to continue our success and momentum throughout the rest of the season."

With breakout star Maggie Q, "Nikita" has become the second most-watched show on The CW (3.6mil), paired with the network's most watched series "The Vampire Diaries."

"Hellcats" is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Tom Welling Productions, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Murphy ("Desperate Housewives," "Reefer Madness"), Tom Welling ("Smallville") and Allan Arkush ("Heroes," "Crossing Jordan").

"Nikita" is from Warner Bros.
