Gossip Girl Spinoff May Cross Paths with The OC

at . Comments

The Gossip Girl spinoff may be a little 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 OC.

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 OC's Kirsten Nichol and Jimmy Cooper, EW reports.

Tate Donovan and Kelly Rowan as The OC's Jimmy and Kirsten.

Does that mean Serena van der Woodsen and Marisa Cooper (Mischa Barton's old character) may have had (bitchy little) play dates with each other at some point?

Nothing is official yet, as the Gossip Girl spinoff is still at the pilot stage, but what do you think of this idea? Too far-fetched, or bicoastal genius? Who would you cast as young versions of The OC's elders? Any thoughts?

[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.
