Extended Video Preview Trailer for The Beautiful Life with Mischa Barton, Corbin Bleu, Sara Paxton

The Beautiful Life: A Longer Look

Models and The CW go together like mashed potatoes and gravy, so I've been curious to see more about The Beautiful Life, the Ashton Kutcher-produced drama series that the network picked up at last month's Upfronts. The show focuses on a group of models living together and trying to make it big in New York, with Mischa Barton and Corbin Bleu among the stars.

The new, extended trailer the network released this week looks a little different from what I'd been expecting. Sure, there's still a lot of makeup and clubby music and glamour shots, like we saw in the first preview clips. But this video really showcases the relationship between two of the young up-and-comers, Raina (Sara Paxton) and Isaac (Ben Hollingsworth), as they're thrown into the modeling world. Their story's contrasted against Sonja's (Barton), as she struggles to maintain her place in the pecking order after a mysterious disappearance from New York society.

To my surprise, there's something almost sweet about this trailer, and it definitely makes me more curious to see the show. One tip to the CW, though: We'll call it TBL if we want to call it TBL. Please don't try to make TBL happen. To check out the trailer, just

agreed about the TBL! a bit tacky if you ask me..... if they didnt push GG for Gossip Girl, why TBL?

I'm actually really excited for this! But, yeah, so not calling it TBL.

it actually looks pretty good. I luv fashion, and I think the fashion world is one of the only environments in which all that campy drama actually does happen (unlike high school or a hospital). I don't love Mischa Barton post-O.C., but she is stunning and I think she will work well for the role. my only problem is what you said Buzz - I really hope they cut the "TBL" from the title; it ruins all credibility and is just downright nauseating...

Jeez, even if I hate this show I'll have to watch it because of my love for Corbin Bleu, ha!

I will most likely watch the 1st ep.Does't look all that bad. I am not a fan of Mischa but I have seen the blonde star a bit and liked her in the past somewhat. I like how it focuses on the gutter downfalls of the modeling industry if anything - at least it seams...

Hmm, not sure about this one. I'll try it I guess. Also, love the note on TBL. Reminds me of Mean Girl. Stop trying to make "fetch" happen! lol

I'll definitely give it a shot...wonder if Mischa's figured out how to act since The O.C.

I really like this extended preview. And I totally agree that the CW cannot force TBL on us! I will probably shorten the name if I blog about it, but not in actual conversation!

i'm sure that i'll check out the first episode because i'm always interested in NYC based shows and shows about models - but we'll see if it holds my attention. i wish that i were a fan of mischa's but i'm not - so here's to hoping that the rest of the cast manages to make it work.
