Following the success of the CW's adaptation of Alloy Entertainment's "Gossip Girl" novels, the network has ordered a pilot based on another Alloy book, "How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls."

The drama project, written by Rina Mimoun, centers on a Yale-educated young woman hired to be the live-in tutor/life coach to two rich heiresses in Palm Beach.

Mimoun is executive producing the pilot with Leslie Morgenstein and Bob Levy.

Warner Bros. TV and Alloy -- the companies behind freshman drama "Gossip Girl," which was renewed for next season earlier this week -- are producing.
