Josh Schwartz and Ugly Betty Writer Team For… Ghost Whisperer?
Here’s the good news about new show Ghost Angeles: It reunites The OC creator Josh Schwartz with that show’s Rachel Bilson for a genre-friendly romantic comedy. Here’s the not-so-sure news: It sounds very much like The Ghost Whisperer.
Deadline Hollywood describes the new show – co-created by Schwartz and Ugly Betty writer Henry Alonso Myers – as centering “on a young woman in Los Angeles who can talk to the dead, helping the spirits as much as they are helping her,” which sounds vague enough to be interesting, as well as vague enough to be meaningless… but it really does sound like the former Jennifer Love Hewitt series that ran on CBS from 2005 to this year. Will it be better just because Bilson is far less annoying to watch than JLH?
NBC has greenlit a pilot for the show, which marks Schwartz’ first creation since 2007′s double-header of Chuck and Gossip Girl.
