Mischa has written a blog about The Beautiful Life getting a pick-up. She’s also arrived back in the US, unfortunately just missing out on the upfronts presentation. Hopefully next time The CW can work around Mischa’s Herbal Essences commitments more successfully.

I’ve been traveling so extensively that I barely had time to react to my pilot getting picked up for a Fall launch.  I’m so excited that even being in a foreign place like Moscow right now couldn’t stifle my enthusiasm.  Russia was awesome and so too will it be to relocate to NYC and begin a regimented schedule for Beautiful Life.

Production is supposed to get underway as of mid July and I couldn’t be more thrilled to call the likes of Ashton Kutcher boss; not to mention being affiliated with the CW.  Think America’s Next Top Model will be the perfect lead-in.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Korbi from Zap2It is also reporting about Mischa’s new show being a lock for the fall, and she also mentions that the show could set up residence in New York instead of Canada where the pilot was filmed. Mischa has also previously hinted that she’d be spending a lot of time in New York if the show were to be picked up. I certainly hope it does move to New York.

On a brighter note, I’m hearing really good things about the Ashton Kutcher-produced “Beautiful Life,” which insiders say is a sure thing for fall. Word is, the drama about young models in the city will film in New York, instead of Canada where the pilot was shot, because the network has high hopes for it.

“Melrose Place,” “Vampire Diaries” and “Beautiful Life” are a go at the CW.

The three dramas are being picked up for a fall launch.

The CW hinted at its plans for “Melrose Place” and “Vampire Diaries” when it gave both pilots permission to start making offers to writers and directors.

If the CW pairs the “Melrose Place” reboot with “90210,” that would bring together the updated versions of the Fox series and its spinoff.

With its name recognition and built-in buzz factor, “Melrose” was an instant favorite before a single page of the script was written.

Still, the CW execs waited to watch the CBS Par-produced pilot and liked what they saw.

For the WBTV-produced “Vampire Diaries,” based on Alloy’s series of books about a girl in a love triangle with two vampire brothers, the network hopes to catch the vampire pop culture wave ignited by the success of the “Twilight” franchise and HBO’s “True Blood.”

And with its setting — a co-ed residence of young models — CBS Par/Katalyst’s “Beautiful Life” would make a perfect scripted companion of “America’s Next Top Model.”

It doesn’t hurt that both “Melrose” and “Life” have tabloid-friendly stars — Mischa Barton and Elle MacPherson in “Life” and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. And “Life” is exec produced by Twitter king Ashton Kutcher.

The CW has a couple of other pilots, including “Life Unexpected,” in consideration for midseason.

With the upfronts almost upon us (the time the networks launch their fall schedules, and we get to find out which shows make the cut), industry insiders are starting to throw their two cents in. Nikki Finke from Deadline Hollywood is claiming that the prospects for Mischa’s new show going to series are very good! Check out the full quote below:

THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE (CBS-Paramount/Katalyst Films) looks very good to be picked up since The CW likes its relationship with Ashton Kutcher and this is a drama about models starring young and old babes like Mischa Barton and Elle McPherson. “It’s sexy and very Dawn Ostroff,” one source tells me.

Style icon Mischa Barton might be known for seamlessly shifting from retro-cool street style and red carpet elegance, but regardless of where she’s headed, Mischa tells, “Accessorizing is oddly my favorite part of dressing up.” It comes as no surprise then that the actress has been having fun developing her headband collection with designer Stacey Lapidus. Mischa says that she found inspiration for the hair accessories, which range from $50 to $200, in her jet set lifestyle. “I’ve been working in the likes of India, Milan, Paris, London, Montreal, L.A, and NYC,” she explains. “My style has been somewhat boho chic, which I think is a result of having traveled so extensively throughout the course of the past year.” And she’s about to get even busier! In addition to her headband line and a collection of handbags, Barton is waiting to hear whether her pilot for the CW, A Beautiful Life, will get picked up for a series this fall. “It was a blast to film and though I’ve only seen bits and pieces [of it], I’m proud of the show and hopeful that I’ll get to shoot some more,” she says. “Since I have an obvious passion for fashion, it was also incredible for me to be offered a role that’s immersed in the industry.” Check out Mischa’s collection, available now at – Lisa Ingrassia

A couple of news stories have come out with some new quotes from Mischa regarding The Beautiful Life:

‘It’s a younger version of Sex And The City,’ Mischa told me at the launch of Matthew Williamson for H&M.  ‘I play a super-bitchy model in New York, which is fun but hard because that is so not me. If the pilot does well, I may be spending a lot more time in New York.’ DailyMail

Elle Macpherson uses insight to help make drama out of fashion

Mandrake hears that the 45-year-old actress has signed up to play a former model turned agent in A Beautiful Life, for which a pilot episode has already been filmed in America.

“It’s a really great show,” said Mischa Barton, who starred in the glamorous drama series The O.C. and plays a model in A Beautiful Life.

It’s like The O.C. times 10. Everyone is dressed in the latest Versace and McQueen. Zac Posen has a fashion show in the first episode and plays himself.”

Mischa, 23, who was speaking at the launch of Matthew Williamson’s range of clothes for H&M, at the chain’s flagship store in Regent Street, added: “It’s hilarious to be playing my character because she’s the famous bitchy character, but she has a heart of gold. She loves a drama. I really enjoy playing her like that, a bit catty.

“I was trying to be as realistic as possible, portraying the good, the bad, everything. I think it’s a fascinating world, couture. I bought most of my wardrobe. My character wears these [she pointed to studded Christian Louboutin heels], which I love.” Telegraph

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 – on The CWchannel.

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.
