The CW liked what it saw from Sean Faris.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, the hot young star who recently showed up on The Vampire Diaries as a hunky bloodsucking bartender landed the lead role in a new series the network is developed currently known as The Wyoming Project.

The show, created by Gilmore Girls mastermind Amy Sherman-Palladino, centers on a young horse trainer (Faris) who takes over the family ranch and watches after his three younger sisters after his parents' death.  Think Party of Five meets Little House on the Prairie.

While it's still too early to tell whether the CW might pick up the series, getting Faris is a good start.  The CW loves hot young stars, and with his ties to the network's top-rated show, his involvement could put The Wyoming Project over the edge.

The show could also offer a chance at redemption for Amy Sherman-Palladino.  Gilmore Girls was a beloved family drama, but her follow up, The Return of Jezebel James, was a disastrous flop.  The Wyoming Project could offer a return to form and a return to success.
