Aimee Teegarden Lands Lead Role in CW’s ‘Hunger Games’ Type Pilot

“Friday Night Lights” alum Aimee Teegarden is heading back to TV.

Aimee has been cast as the lead in the CW’s pilot called “The Selection” according to TVLine.

The drama pilot is very similar to The Hunger Games and is described as an epic romance set 300 years in the future which centers on a poor young woman who is chosen by lottery to participate in a competition to become the next queen of a war-torn nation at a crossroads.

The show is based on the forthcoming series of books by Kiera Cass. Sounds pretty interesting. We can’t wait to see who else is cast! Congrats Aimee!
