CW Gives Go-Ahead to ‘Gossip Girl’ Pilot

Jan 4, 2007  •  Post A Comment

On the heels of Fox’s cancellation of his series “The O.C.” after four seasons, creator Josh Schwartz got a green light from The CW for his teen soap pilot “Gossip Girl.”
“Girl” is based on a book series about upper-class Manhattan teens and their parents and is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Alloy Entertainment.
Earlier this week, NBC ordered a drama pilot from Mr. Schwartz, “Chuck,” which he is producing along with Chris Fedak.
Some media reports and fans have speculated that Mr. Schwartz might continue “The O.C.” on The CW, but Mr. Schwartz has said he will not continue the series anywhere else.
