In addition to airing the pilot episode in its entirety, The CW will offer an enhanced GOSSIP GIRL experience to passionate devotees and the uninitiated wanting to see how the phenomenon began. During the broadcast, viewers will go behind the scenes for in-depth conversations with TV's hottest cast, including Blake Lively ("Serena van der Woodsen"), Leighton Meester ("Blair Waldorf"), Penn Badgley ("Dan Humphrey"), Chace Crawford ("Nate Archibald"), Taylor Momsen ("Jenny Humphrey"), Ed Westwick ("Chuck Bass"), Kelly Rutherford ("Lily van der Woodsen"), Matthew Settle ("Rufus Humphrey") and Jessica Szohr ("Vanessa"). Additional bonus material includes never-before-seen footage from the series, profiles of the players and the wannabes in the GOSSIP GIRL world, featurettes on the GOSSIP GIRL fashion and music, and much more.
In the following weeks, The CW will air all of the GOSSIP GIRL episodes in consecutive order every Monday (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET). An encore presentation of the ALIENS IN AMERICA episode "Junior Prank" will air one-time only on January 28 (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET).
