35 girls. 1 crown. The competition of a lifetime. Cinderella meets television’s The Bachelor in this captivating, near-future romance. A pilot of The Selection is in production for the CW!
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is a dream come true. The chance to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To live in a castle and compete to win the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
All seventeen-year-old America Singer wants is a future with her secret boyfriend, Aspen. But when she is Selected, she must grudgingly head to the castle. Though America has no interest in ruling a country divided by castes, her relationship with Maxon slowly begins to bloom, and when she’s unexpectedly confronted by her past, America is forced to choose between the life she left behind and a future she never imagined.

• TV’ s 10 Things I Hate About You’s Ethan Peck (as Prince Maxon)
