'At the lighter end of the scale, those of you who've been waiting for a new BFF to fill the gaping OC/Dawson's/90210 hole in your lives could do far worse than sign up for an upper east side preppy education in Gossip Girl (March, ITV2). Based on Cecily von Ziegesar's string of novels. It's Cruel Intentions with a noughties Abercrombie sheen - and as it's adapted by Josh Schwartz (the Seth Cohenalike behind The OC), you'd be right to expect a string of zippy one-liners, powerhouse teen bitchiness and a general fascination with the lives of the urban rich' Guardian
