Mischa Barton is coming to the CW — but not, as rumored, in the pilot for the new Melrose Place. Instead, she'll be playing a model in The Beautiful Life, a drama pilot that's being considered for Fall.
The show's being produced by Ashton Kutcher, among others, and revolves around a group of models (coed, naturally) living together in a house in New York City. Barton's character is Sonja, "a supermodel and veteran of the high-fashion circuit who is struggling to keep on top and is in danger of slipping."
The famously fashion-loving Barton's got modeling experience of her own to draw on — she's been the face of Bebe and her own handbag and headband collections, among others. I'm curious to see how this project comes together — and even more curious to see Barton back on the small screen. Tell me: Do you think this sounds like a good post-OC project for the former Marissa Cooper?
