American teen drama Gossip Girl is set for an Eastern makeover as the show heads to China.
The hit TV series, starring Blake Lively and Leighton Meester as wealthy New York socialites, is to be revamped for Asian audiences and transformed into China Girl, which will be filmed in Mandarin, with creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage acting as consultants.
The new show will feature a Chinese cast and is likely to include less racy storylines than its American counterpart to adhere to the country's strict broadcasting regulations.
It is due to debut in November (12), according to the Los Angeles Times.
