Novel Adventures

CBS Interactive and Saturn have jointly announced plans for a new web-series called Novel Adventures. Starring Daphne Zuniga (”One Tree Hill”), Paola Turbay (”Cane”), Ashley Williams (”How I Met Your Mother”) and Jolie Jenkins (”Desperate Housewives”), each episode will spotlight a different book, as the four characters go on adventures inspired by each novel. The second episode will feature Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon – and the Journey of a Generation by Sheila Weller (although they mistakenly call the book Ladies of the Canyon). From the press release:

The Fab Four: Sheila Weller’s Ladies of the Canyon (Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, and Carole King) brings the groupie out in the girls who are determined to live out the life of rock legends.

Produced and written by Jonathan Prince (”The Cleaner”), the web-series will premiere Monday, November 3 on,, and “The Fab Four” episode will appear the following Monday at the same websites for 48 hours, and then be available through iTunes.

Yes it feels like you are being hit over the head with product placement, but the concept is cute. And I, of course, would support anything that brings attention to books.
