Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are launching their new series, Prohibited!

The couple’s Rare Birds Productions and Warner Bros. TV inked a deal to put their hour-long soapy drama into development for The CW.

Here’s a plot summary for the series, via Deadline: “Prohibited is described as an upstairs/downstairs Southern soap where high-spirited former thief Amelia Jones attempts a fresh start in male-dominated Bourbon Country. Her new life, however, is upended when her two sisters show up demanding Amelia’s help in orchestrating the most dangerous heist of their lives: robbing the Money Room of the Kentucky Derby. Amelia now finds herself torn between the thrill of her dangerous past and her newfound ambition of becoming a Bourbon Queen.”

Ian and Nikki will executive produce the show, which is penned by Jesse Lasky (Revenge).

    Yeah, same here

  • KRJ

    I believe it’s going to be hard for Ian to create a project & have it succeed w/ her name attached to it. His relationship w/ nikki is holding Ian back, not wishing him bad luck or anything but their union is hurting his career. He should know by now that he just can’t do anymore for her, he has done enough for nikki time to break free & save his own career.

    Can’t see it taking off. Sorry but anything with Nikki’s name attached to it never succeeds his career has really taken a dive since he got with her

  • KRJ

    I totally agree on that one! Ian need’s to start concentrating on his own career & stop helping to promote her’s!

  • Blackkitty

    I’m sorry but nobody not even Ian somerhalder. Can save her dead career. She’s a D List actress and he’s going the same way! He’s had no promotions or endorsemets since he hooked up with her. From what I’ve heard not even her actress friends can help her with her fashion line…
