Julie Plec (born May 26, 1972) is an American television producer and writer, known for her work on the Scream films and the television show Kyle XY. She co-created the CW television series The Vampire Diaries with Kevin Williamson. Thus, her most notable work(s) are: Scream, Kyle XY, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and now the 2013 reboot of The Tomorrow People
Plec penned another script for Wes Craven, Cursed, which was released in 2005 and starred Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg, Joshua Jackson, and Shannon Elizabeth. The film suffered many script and scheduling difficulties during production and ultimately failed to perform at the box office. Plec developed a new TV series for The CW entitled The Vampire Diaries, which was adapted from a novel series of the same name by L.J. Smith. The series follows the life of Elena Gilbert(Nina Dobrev), who falls in love with vampire Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), and soon finds herself caught in a love triangle between Stefan and his older brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), whilethe brothers are also being haunted by the past they've had with Katherine Pierce (also played by Dobrev). The series also focuses on the lives of Elena's friends and other inhabitants of the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. The Vampire Diaries premiered on September 10, 2009, and has become a domestic and international hit. In November 2012, Deadline.com announced that Julie Plec and Greg Berlanti had attained the rights to The Tomorrow People and commissioned a pilot written by Phil Klemmer.
This occurred after a similar rights option expired to an aborted attempt two years previously. It was announced on 28 January 2013 that the revival had received a pilot order from the The CW Television Network. On May 9th 2013 the series was picked up for the 2013-14 season by [The CW]]. On January 11, 2013, it was announced that a back-door pilot of The Vampire Diaries entitled The Originals focusing on the Original family of vampires was in the works.
