The show will follow 18-year-old Clarissa “Clary” Fray who finds herself immersed in the supernatural world of the Shadowhunters, beings with angel blood who hunt down demons and other creatures to protect normal humans from their clutches. She meets talented Shadowhunter Jace soon after her mother is mysteriously kidnapped.
In 2013, Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower starred in the big screen version of City of Bones, which was adapted from the first book in the series of six. Constatin Films, who produced the movie, announced last October that they had plans to do a television adaptation instead. McG is currently signed on to direct the pilot episode.
Sherwood is most known for his role as Christian Ozera in the Vampire Academy film.
Who do you want to see cast as Clary, Simon, Alec and Isabelle?
