An Interview with Josh Schwartz

by at . Comments
Josh Schwartz Our friends at BuddyTV recently spoke with Gossip Girl (and Chuck) creator Josh Schwartz. Here are highlights of the interview:

Two shows this year. How do you even wrap your head around creating two new shows in one year?
It requires a lot of wrapping, head wrapping. But I'm really lucky, I'm working with a couple of really great writers. Stephanie Savage on Gossip Girl, who I worked with for a bunch of years on The O.C., and Chris Fedak who I created Chuck with. He's a buddy of mine going back to our college days at USC.

And how involved are you in both shows? Is there one that you're spending more time with?
I'm currently in the Caribbean on a hammock, drinking a cocktail with an umbrella in it.

So you're just, you create the two shows, you go away and you're reaping all the benefits.

If only. No, I'm heavily involved in both. Breaking stories, writing, rewriting. You know, in the editing room, all that kind of good stuff.

And is that difficult, to manage both shows? Do you feel ever that one show is getting less of your attention, and you feel like one's neglected, while you're focusing on the other one?
I sure hope not. I mean certainly, you can't be everywhere all the time, and there'll be times where I'll be spending more time on one show than another. But you know I'm trying to do my best to be involved in both.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
