Reese Witherspoon, CW Making a Modern-Day Great Expectations

Or: Reese Witherspoon is producing a CW television show — called Expectations — about a small-town girl who moves to San Francisco, gets overwhelmed by the big city, and then receives an anonymous sum of money that makes everything better again. There will also probably be a yoga instructor named Havisham and a bar called Jaggers, because Dickens novels should be treated with respect.
