Mischa excited about fashion drama
Mischa Barton has promised her new TV show is going to be “like The OC times 10″.
The 23-year-old actress is to star in a fashion drama – rumoured to be titled A Beautiful Life – onchannel.
Mischa said: “It’s like Entourage for the fashion world and I think there’s a real market for that these days -it’s like taking what’s really fun and guilty about The OC and it’s like that times 10, because the fashion on The OC was definitely great but this would be like couture.”
She continued: “And there’s something so fascinating about the world of couture that hasn’t been explored properly and I think it could be really exciting.
“I hope this show will take off and I think if it does it will be a huge hit.
“I don’t want to be presumptuous, but I mean we just got so lucky – Zac Posen has a fashion show in the first episode and plays himself as a designer.
“My character’s in a Versace dress and me and the other girls styled ourselves and we’re all wearing incredible McQueen shoes and great bags.
“Elle McPherson plays the modelling agent, ex-model, in it. It’s just really exciting so maybe it will be a good fit.”
Mischa has always loved fashion and styled herself in teen drama The OC. She has just launched the third season of her own handbag collection which she designed herself. It can be seen at Mischa Barton – Handbag Shop Online.

The following is a review of the script for Mischa’s upcoming TV show “The Beautiful Life”. Thanks to Charlie from TVScriptDude for sending it in.
I received a few weeks ago The Beautiful Life but didn’t really notice it until I heard this would mark Mischa Barton come back on tv. Not that I care or anything, but that just makes this show one of the most anticipated for the next season, yes, really.
Top models living together in New York, it does sound really cliche and while I was waiting for another Vampire Diaries monstrosity, it turns out The Beautiful Life has a lot to offer.
Chris is the small town genuinely nice guy who, while travelling to New York will catch the eye of Simon, a gay talent scout (how original), that offers to meet him at the agency where he will then meet Raina. They both click right away, and the development of their relation interests quickly thanks to a great writing that makes you wonder how Raina managed to stay so down to earth and naive in such a competitive world.
The characters are ordinary as I expected but it’s quickly proven that they are not so one note and cliche as you would think. Especially the naive Raina who just had her big break played by Sara Paxton. For the rest, it’s a CW pilot therefore I was expecting the show to focus on the beautiful and the pleasant part of the fashion world but The Beautiful Life, au contraire, focuses wisely on the dark part of modelling. Addictions to all sorts of things, bulimia and much more are parts of these teenagers’ life. There are some interesting but hard subjects to talk about, first because it’s easy to become too light on subjects that shouldn’t be treated so and then because the lack of knowledge is obvious (but I guess it’s kinda too early to talk).
I’m also glad a good spec script can make it these days, especially considering the fact that most of the next season’s TV shows are coming from writers with a huge background. I mean, Adam Giaudrone only has two credits at IMDB (South Beach and Swingtown) and the network might actually get something good out of this.
Finally, this pilot is well done, and if I manage not to comeback for week two next season, it will be the CW’s fault for destroying a script who could be above everything the network has done these last years.
I’ve also read the script and as I mentioned on the Twitter page, it is really awesome! Mischa made a great choice with this one.
