Josh Schwartz has two pilots in the works.
Jan 04, 2007
The O.C. creator at CW, NBC

The O.C. may be over, but the show's creator is still alive and kicking. Yesterday, as Fox was canceling the SoCal teen drama, CW picked up Schwartz's pilot Gossip Girl. The day before, NBC picked up his pilot for Crumbs.

Gossip Girl, green-lit in August, will be the CW's first scripted pilot. The show, based on a series of books of the same name, will revolve around the world of New York teens and their parents. The stories will be told from the vantage point of an unnamed blogger.

"It speaks to the culture that we live in now and the way that kids communicate," Schwartz told Variety.

Action-drama Crumbs follows a man who has downloaded the entire CIA database into his head.

Both pilots will be produced by Warner Bros. TV, where Schwartz has a seven figure production deal. Warner Bros. TV also produced The ...

Sun setting on The OC

Newport Beach's day in the sun--make that the proverbial sun--is about to come to a close.

The OC, the Fox show that chronicled life among a group of teenage friends in the Orange County locale, will end after its February 22 episode, the network said late today.

"This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close," show creator Josh Schwartz said in a statement. "Thanks to the hard work of our cast, crew, and writers, we have enjoyed our best season yet, and what better time to go out than creatively on top. It has been an amazing experience and a great run. For a certain audience, at a certain time, The OC has meant something. For that we are grateful."

Fox is set to air new episodes of the show every Thursday starting tomorrow, with ...

McG to pilot NBC drama Chuck

Charlie's Angels director McG will direct and executive-produce the new NBC drama pilot from the creator of Fox's The O.C..

Chuck is described as an action-comedy-drama about spies and 20-somethings in the vein of Grosse Pointe Blank.

Six relative newcomers have enrolled in the Comedy Central pilot Not Another High School Show, a spoof of teen TV dramas.

Gossip Girls the talk of the small screen

The fledgling CW network is developing a drama based on the popular Gossip Girl books about privileged teenagers attending elite private schools in New York City.

The O.C. - also known as Orange County, California - is an idyllic paradise, a wealthy, harbor-front community where everything and everyone appears to be perfect. But beneath the surface is a world of shifting loyalties and identities, of kids living secret lives hidden from their parents and of parents living secret lives hidden from their children. 'The O.C.' tells the story of the Cohen, Cooper and Nichol families and Ryan Atwood, a troubled teen from the wrong side of the tracks who is thrust into this world and who will forever change the lives of the residents of The O.C.
