"Longmire," a contemporary crime thriller set in Big Sky country, is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson.

Detective Catherine Chandler (Kreuk) is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective. Several years earlier, Catherine witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Catherine would have been killed too, but someone -- or something -- saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn't an animal that attacked the assassins...it was human. Years have passed, and Catherine is a strong, confident, capable police officer, working alongside her equally talented partner, Tess (Nina Lisandrello). While investigating a murder, Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller (Ryan), who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Catherine learns that Vincent is actually still alive and that it was he who saved her many years before. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years to guard his secret -- when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Catherine agrees to protect his identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother's murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Catherine and Vincent, who are powerfully drawn to each other yet understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them.
The series stars Kristin Kreuk ("Smallville," "Chuck") as Catherine, Jay Ryan ("Terra Nova") as Vincent, Max Brown ("The Tudors," "MI-5″) as Evan, Nina Lisandrello ("Nurse Jackie") as Tess, Nicole Gale Anderson ("Make It or Break It") as Heather, Austin Basis ("Life Unexpected") as J.T., and Brian White ("The Shield," "The Cabin in the Woods") as Joe.

Witt ("A Better Life") & Tony Thomas ("A Better Life"), Ron Koslow ("Moonlight") and Gary Fleder ("Life Unexpected").

"The CW's newest Thursday night drama, "Beauty and the Beast," will have a lot to live up to when it inherits the 9 p.m. post-"The Vampire Diaries" time slot in the fall. The network announced that the shows will be paired together on its official Fall 2012 TV schedule, bringing former "Smallville" star Kristin Kreuk back to the network on the night where she used to reside.
"'Beauty and the Beast' takes a classic love story and adds a procedural element," says CW President Mark Pedowitz. While "The Secret Circle" didn't survive more than one year after the excellence of "TVD," "B&B's" supernatural element and CW royalty make the two shows a perfect match in theory."
"I hear Beauty & The Beast, the CW's reboot of the 1980s series, is likely to snag the network's marquee launching pad behind The Vampire Diaries on Thursday in the fall. The series, starring Kristin Kreuk, is one of five new scripted series the CW has picked up for next season — the most in the network's six-year history. Among those is Arrow, based on DC's Green Arrow character, which, like Vampire Diaries, is a genre show but skews a lot more male. That makes Beauty & The Beast, a cop procedural set against a love story between Catherine/Beauty (Kreuk) and Vincent/Beast (Jay Ryan), a more suitable companion to the vampire love saga."
"According to industry sources, Beauty & The Beast could very well serve as rich dessert to the Ian Somerhalder-filled Vampire Diaries next Fall.The team behind the fairy tale series is trying hard to secure the spot (and therefore secure higher ratings)! We are totally 100% behind this!! Not sure about B&B yet?? Well fans of Smallville probably already know ALL about it. Yep! Lana Lang is back on The CW!! Kristin Kreuk is playing Beauty herself as Catherine. Jay Ryan will play Beast (Vincent), of course. Can't wait to see these two ravish each other!! With all the Ian and Nina Dobrev steam coming from the Vampire Diaries, audiences won't have any energy to change the channel. Fingers crossed to you, new kid!! We hope you get the coveted time slot!!!"
Official confirmation should come tomorrow morning during The CW's Upfront, which by the way, Kristin Kreuk is set to be making an appearance!
