Gossip Girl Spin-off May Involve O.C. Teens, Too

It might be East meets West, CW style.

As if exploring Lily van der Woodsen's roots via a Gossip Girl spin-off wasn't enough, Josh Schwartz may revisit an old TV family tree for his new pilot - namely, he might shake the branches of his previous teen drama, The O.C.

Schwartz and co-creator Stephanie Savage are "toying with the idea" of having young Lily (to be played by American Dreams girl Brittany Snow) interact with teen versions of The O.C.'s Kirsten Nichol and Jimmy Cooper, EW.com reports. That's right. Serena and Marisa may on one time have had (bitchy little) play dates with each other.

Nothing is official yet and Lily is still at the pilot stage, but what do you think of this idea? Is it too far-fetched, or bicoastal genius? And more importantly, who would you cast as young versions of The O.C.'s elders?
