The CW has handed a pilot order to a spinoff of Jane the Virgin.Titled Jane the Novela, the spinoff will — as previously reported — be a telenovela-inspired anthology based on Jane Villanueva’s fictional novels, with Jane star Gina Rodriguez narrating the episodes. Each season will be adapted from a different book; the first installment “takes place at a Napa Valley vineyard, where family secrets (and family members) don’t stay buried for long,” per the network.

Behind the scenes, Jane the Novela shares a lot of DNA with the original: Jane writer Valentina Garza will pen the pilot script, with Rodriguez and Jane creator Jennie Snyder Urman serving as executive producers. Plus, Jane veteran Brad Silberling is slated to direct the pilot.
