NEW YORK, May 17 (UPI) -- The bulk of shows announced Wednesday by the new CW network are being carried over from the soon-to-be history UPN and WB Network.

The only new offerings when the network makes its debut will be the drama "Runaway," starring Donnie Wahlberg as an innocent man on the lam with his family, and "The Game," about the lives of women linked to pro football players, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Series given new lives with the new network include "Veronica Mars," "One Tree Hill," "Girlfriends," "Everybody Hates Chris, "All of Us," "Smallville," "Supernatural," "Gilmore Girls," "America's Next Top Model" and "Beauty and the Geek,"

The WB's veteran family drama "7th Heaven" is expected to join the CW lineup, but an official announcement was pending the outcome of contract talks with its cast.
