The CW Is Making a "Little Women" Series and More Major Moments for Women In Hollywood This Week

The CW Is Making a "Little Women" Series and More Major Moments for Women In Hollywood This Week

By Megan Angelo 

Whether you're an Amy, a Beth, a Meg or a Jo — oh, who am I kidding, we all think we're Jo — you'll be interested to hear this news about "Little Women" coming to TV. That and more big stuff that went down all week, right this way:

Marmie's girls are headed to the CW
Louisa May Alcott's classic "Little Women" is being explored as the basis for a new series on the network. The pilot in the works is described as an edgy, gritty take on the tale, with the sisters uncovering a government conspiracy in the 1800s. 

"I Am Cait" feels the debut ratings love
Caitlyn Jenner's 'docu-drama' beat out "Keeping Up With the Kardashians'" traditional performance when it notched over 2.7 million viewers in its premiere.

Troubling details about the "Trainwreck" shooter's attitude towards women emerge
Fallout from the heartbreaking movie theater attack in Lafayette, La., continues; now, police are looking closely at the shooter's history with women in order to deduce whether he sought out a showing of Amy Schumer's funny, feminist rom-com to specifically target females.

Those Beyoncé/Wiz rumors are getting real
It seems pretty clear that NBC hasn't been able to afford its dream Glinda pick, Beyoncé, for its upcoming live musical adaptation of "The Wiz." But bad news for NBC: Now that we all know about it, there's no going back. It's a part of our hearts and minds, and it must happen at any cost.

Chelsea Handler sheds some light on her Netflix partnership
Right now, she's focused on making documentaries (so you'll have to hang in there a little longer, Chelsea Lately fans.) Handler is focused on taking deep dives into controversial topics. At Netflix's TCA panel, she revealed that the four films she's working on are: "Chelsea Does Marriage," "Chelsea Does Racism," "Chelsea Does Silicon Valley" and "Chelsea Does Drugs."

Kaitlyn Bristowe chooses Shawn Booth on "The Bachelorette"
But then again, we figured that would happen. Who's keeping an eye on the timer for Nick's 15 minutes of fame? Feels like they should be about up.

Tig Notaro goes and gets herself a fabulous TV show
The everywhere-comic will star in a comedy produced by Louis C.K. and Diablo Cody for Amazon. That team cannot miss. The concept, too, is winningly authentic: Tig's character goes back to her Mississippi hometown to be with her dying mother.
