Tomorrow, a new webseries from Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl and Chuck), ROCKVILLE CA, will premiere its first 4 episodes on TheWB.com. After that 2 episodes will be posted every Tuesday until May 12. There will be 20 episodes total all ranging between 4-6 minutes each.
I first wrote about Rockville, CA back in November 2008, and since then I was able to take a sneak peek at a few episodes from the show, which I have to say I really enjoyed. If you enjoyed Josh Schwartz's previous shows, then this one is a must.
Earlier this year, I went to the TCA for Rockville, CA and gathered some additional information to share with you before the premiere tomorrow.
Rockville, CA follows the lives of a group of twentysomethings, who gather at their favorite club, Rockville (a fictional Los Angeles rock venue, where the series takes place), to hear their favorite up-and-coming bands. Each episode Rockville, CA will feature different bands.
In Josh Schwartz's words: I think this is a show about people in their early twenties who are finding themselves, finding their place as adults. They are in that transitional phase. I think a lot of times when you are young, when you are in your early twenties, music and the people who make music have a really sort of powerful affect on you, and sometimes you believe that the artist is the man. And sometimes the guy on the sidelines, who is criticizing the music, might be the better catch.
As for how the bands for Rockville, CA were picked, executive producer and music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas explained that they really thought about how a real local rock club would sort out their schedule for a month. A good local club has bands from the area, and that's the backbone of any club.
They also looked at what was coming out this spring, and tried to come up with an interesting and eclectic group of 20 bands.
Each band performance will be between 15 to 20 seconds long in each episode. Although, we do hear them play in the background throughout the episode.
Also in order to make the show as realistic as possible, Josh Schwartz reached out to some rock journalists and critics for help in sharing their own experience living in that universe.
