At this point, we're starting to understand that all one needs to do to sell a pilot these days is to pick any work of classic literature, chop words off the title, and set it in the modern day.  'Alice in Wonderland' becomes 'Wunderland,' even Green Arrow comics become 'Arrow,' so what's the latest hack n' slash adaptation coming to The CW?  Why, an adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations' of course, courtesy of Reese Witherspoon!  Guess which word they chop off!
