The Next Buffy? Summer TV Fun!

You might remember that around this time last year I was invited by ABC Family to be a Pretty Little Liars Secret Keeper. Those of us selected were sent special phones where we received messages from the mysterious A who had us doing all kinds of fun stuff in order to protect our secrets. It was truly one of the most amazingly put-together and FUN games I have ever played. And for an awesome show.

Well, this year ABC Family has outdone itself. I've been invited to play The Nine Paths of Chloe King a game tied to to their new series The Nine Lives of Chloe King And this year, instead of sending me a special phone to play the game, they're sending me a custom ipad 2! Yes, really! I almost passed out when I read that. They're calling it a MaiPad because we will be playing as members of the ancient and mysterious Mai race.

And the best part is that this year everyone will be able to play the game too. (Albeit without the ipad.)

So what is The Nine Lives of Chloe King about? I wondered that too. It's based on a trilogy of books by Liz Braswell that came out a few years ago.

Judging from the trailer and the description, it sounds a bit like Buffy, which was a show I LOVED so, definitely looking forward to this one. Check out the trailer and the blurb:

Chloe King is looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her friends and single mother, just like every other year…that is until she starts developing heightened abilities and discovers she's being pursued by a mysterious figure. Chloe soon learns she's part of an ancient race which has been hunted by human assassins for millennia —and that she may be their only hope for ultimate survival.

The Nine Lives of Chloe King premieres June 14th at 9pm, right after the summer premiere of Pretty Little Liars. Until then, don't be surprised if you see making a lot of tweets, blog posts, and facebook updates involving the show. The game runs 5/24-6/14.

Is anyone else playing? Can't wait to meet you all!

I'm playing! I thought the email was a joke at first (seriously, who would give me an iPad 2?) But I asked around and I heard from the PLL participants that it was the same company. I'm ecstatic! Can't wait for tomorrow morning to start the game :)

Hi Valerie!

I'm playing too. I thought the same thing that Abigail thought. I double checked the company to see if it was legit. Then I figured I wouldn't have been fast enough in responding.

Loving the game so far. Wish I'd been part of the PLL one! That show is my husband's bane lol I am addicted but it comes on so late here.

Looking forward to sharing this experience with you! How have I not seen your blog before? *follwing now* :)
