Michelle TrachtenbergMichelle Trachtenberg has been many things throughout her extensive Hollywood career.

She's been an elementary school spy, Little Pete's friend, the Key, a nurse, a snarky rich girl and so much more. Now, she's ready to graduate to a criminal profiler. (Well, a criminology student who has a gift for profiling and a dark past.)

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Trachtenberg is teaming up with 'Gossip Girl' honchos Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage to produce and star in the project at The CW. The series only has a script order so far.

I hate Gossip girl, the only attractive girl on that show was the young clean cut blond girl. then she got mean and dirty and I lost interest forever. all the other girls are just plain ugly. in fact the mothers looked better than thier daughters was just unreal. why they did not give Michelle Trachtenberg a regular part is beyond me. I have adored Michelle Trachtenberg, ever since she was harriet the spy. Give Michelle Trachtenberg her own show already. then you can cancel gossip girl.
