ROCKVILLE, CA: A Josh Schwartz New Online Series

Alexandra Chando as Deb, Andrew West as Hunter

Josh Schwartz (“Gossip Girl,” “Chuck,” “The O.C.”) is joining the online community with a new, music-themed original webseries, ROCKVILLE, CA,

Rockville, CA will premiere on TheWB.com in 2009 with an initial run of 20 episodes.

Each episode of Rockville, CA will feature a band playing at Rockville, a fictional club in the show, against the backdrop of a weekly episodic scripted drama. And since we’re already big fans of Josh Schwartz’ previous series, I think we might be in for a treat once more.

Some of the indie bands scheduled to appear are The Duke Spirit, Eagles of Death Metal, Earlimart, Frightened Rabbit, The Kooks, The Little Ones, Lykke Li, Nico Stai, Passion Pit, Phantom Planet, and White Lies. And more will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rockville, CA stars Andrew West (“Privileged”), Alexandra Chando (“As the World Turns”), Ryan Hansen (“Veronica Mars,” “Las Vegas”) and Mighty Rasta (“Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay,” “My Wife and Kids”).
