Gossip Girl is an American teen drama television series based on the book series of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesar.The series, created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, originally ran on The CW for six seasons from September 19, 2007, to December 17, 2012.I called Dawn Ostroff -- who was the head of The CW at the time -- and said, 'Hey, I did so much narration on Veronica Mars, can I narrate this show?And she said, 'Hey, that's a very good idea.' They knew I had a younger voice, they liked me and they knew I'd show up for work, and I guess that was all I really needed.It was so clear to me how sassy and catty she needed to be.Taylor Momsen, Chace Crawford, Kelly Rutherford, and Connor Paolo also auditioned successfully and landed roles in the series in March, as did Florencia Lozano who appeared only in the pilot, and was replaced by Margaret Colin.And I think they've probably incorporated that into how they mythologize New York.I fought really hard to shoot the show in New York because we want New York to be a character in the show." Each episode begins with the home page of the Gossip Girl website with Serena's picture from the pilot episode.
Victor/Victrola filmed the fictional infamous Chuck Bass burlesque club, Victrola, at The Box Manhattan, a sister club to The Box Soho in London.Afterward, a recap of events relevant to the upcoming narrative is shown, which ends again with the home page of the website, only this time with a picture from other character(s) with a text about a recent event connected with the picture.The narrator is Gossip Girl, voiced by Kristen Bell.Rufus is Dan and Jenny's father and primary guardian.The success of Gossip Girl led to adaptations outside the United States. The characters are worldly in a way that Orange County kids aren't." The O. creator Josh Schwartz and fellow writer Stephanie Savage have served as the show's executive producers throughout the series' run, followed by Bob Levy and Leslie Morgenstein of Alloy Entertainment, who were assigned in aiding the adaptation of the novels into the series.
