Mischa Barton's TV Series Postponed
Production on Mischa Barton's new CW drama The Beautiful Life has been postponed as the actress remains under psychiatric evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Shooting was to begin July 22 but will now start July 31, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Despite the actress' hospitalization, the production schedule was changed due to some of the sets not being completed, the paper reports. Beautiful Life, which is executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, centers on a group of models living together in a coed residence in New York. Barton plays a supermodel and veteran of the high-fashion circuit who is struggling to keep on top and is in danger of slipping.
The series is slated to premiere Sept. 16. There is still no word on when Barton will be released from the hospital.
