Josh Schwartz is no stranger to cutting-edge music. The creator of the popular O.C. for Fox was always introducing new bands on the show. Now, he’s taking that to the next level.
His new online series Rockville will be available on TheWB.com, and will feature performances of hot new bands during each webisode.
“I don’t know if this is the final result, that we’re going to make five-minute episodes of things,” Schwartz said yesterday at a press conference. “But that’s what makes this exciting.”
There will also probably be an extended DVD release of the series, and possibly an expansion to network TV.
The series debuts with 4 episodes on March 17 and 2 or 3 new episodes a week.
