Nothing gets us more excited then Michelle Trachtenburg on our TV sets, and now the 25-year-old actress has locked up a new series that she’ll executive produce and star in!

Michelle Trachtenburg is one of our favorite young actresses on TV and we’ve missed seeing her beautiful (and talented) face on Gossip Girl and Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Luckily, the 25-year-old actress is making her small screen comeback on her own CW show — and she’s even going to be the executive producer.

“Trachtenberg has joined forces with producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage under their shingle Fake Empire for this one hour drama,” Michelle’s rep told our sister site Deadline Hollywood, adding, “They pitched Michelle’s idea to Warner Brothers Studio, [which] bought the pitch right then and there, and immediately took it to the CW, [which] bought it in the room.”

The show is based on “a young criminology student with a dark past and a knack for profiling suspects” and is going to focus on strong female characters.

Michelle even dished about her excitement for the project telling E!, “It will be really cool and different, something you haven’t seen before.”

If everything goes as planned, we’ll be seeing Michelle’s new show next fall — will YOU watch it?
