Following up on a successful run as Lana Lang on Smallville, Kristin Kreuk returns to TV in a re-imagining of the 1980′s series Beauty and the Beast. I was in Ballroom 20 and got an eyeful of the pilot episode and the skinny. The show stars Kreuk, Jay Ryan, Max Brown, Nina Lisandrello, Nicole Anderson, Austin Basis, and Brian J. White. Beauty and the Beast premieres on The CW on October 11th. Hit the jump for my full recap of the panel.
