Article: Josh Schwartz’s New Web Series

7 01 2009

Josh Schwartz keeps adding more to his plate!  Besides Gossip Girl and Chuck, he’s also at the helm of Rockville, CA (ever notice that teen drama titles are often based on location??).

Rockville, CA is a new web series airing exclusively on TheWB.com this March.

Why the web instead of the good ‘ol CW?  These episodes are only 4 minutes long, making them super-convenient.

Also involved is Alexandra Patsavas who you may know from choosing the awesome music on The O.C. and GG.

You can read more about Schwart’z new creation here.
