TBL News & Media #2: Premiere date is almost upon us! September 16th, 9/8c on The CW





Cast

Mischa Barton as Sonja Stone
Corbin Bleu as Isaac Taylor
Benjamin Hollingsworth as Chris Andrews
Ashley Madekwe as Marissa Delfina
Nico Tortorella as Cole Shepherd
with Elle Macpherson as Claudia Foster
and Sara Paxton as Raina Marinelli



Plot

The life of a high-fashion model appears glamorous and sexy, but as every new model quickly learns, behind the beautiful façade is a world of insecurity and cut-throat competition. Two teenage models who are about to discover this world for themselves are Raina Mayer (Sara Paxton, "Last House on the Left"), a stunning beauty with a secret past, and Chris Andrews (Benjamin Hollingsworth, "The Line"), a strikingly handsome Iowa farm boy.

When Raina makes an unforgettable impression at a show introducing the new line from designer Zac Posen (appearing in a cameo role), she steals the spotlight from her friend Sonja Stone (Mischa Barton, "The O.C."). Sonja has been out of the country for mysterious reasons and is now desperate to reclaim her standing as the reigning supermodel. While Raina and Sonja live at the top of the fashion food chain, Chris is starting at the bottom, having just been discovered by an agent at the Covet Modeling Agency, which is owned by former supermodel Claudia Foster (Elle Macpherson, "Friends").

At his first photo shoot, Chris' inexperience almost derails his career until Raina comes to his rescue, showing him how to relax and work the camera. That afternoon, Raina brings Chris to the "models' residence" where she lives along with other young hopefuls, including Marissa Delfina (Ashley Madekwe, "Secret Diary of a Call Girl"), Isaac Taylor (Corbin Bleu, "High School Musical 2") and the current alpha-male-model known as Cole Shepherd (Nico Tortorella, "Twelve").

At an exclusive industry party that night, Chris is again impressed by Raina's generosity when she steps aside to make sure Sonja lands a job that will resurrect her career. However, after an ugly scene with an agent, Chris is left to question whether he can survive in this world of dangerous excess and fleeting fame.

THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE: TBL is from Katalyst Films in association with CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Ashton Kutcher & Jason Goldberg ("True Beauty," "Punk'd"), Karey Burke ("True Beauty") and Mike Kelley ("Swingtown," "Jericho").

They really make the show look more interesting and exciting to someone watching the promos without knowing much about the show.

Thanks for the new thread.

That's great news.

That's good, I don't think many people will be watching the CW on Fridays but at least they are giving it more exposure.

Any extra eye balls is always a good thing.

Edit:

Some really nice comments from a TBL director on Twitter:
Norman Buckley (norbuck) on Twitter

Love the cast and crew of THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE. Elle McPherson: lovely, kind, intelligent. Mischa Barton: a total pro. I adore her.

Sara Paxton: was feeling sick and just kept working, without complaint. Nico Tortorella: handsome, funny, and relaxed.


Corbin, Jamie, Ashley, Ben, Gal, Ed, Natalie, Jill, Billy, Gavin--thanks to all for a good first week.

Matt, Michael, Charlie, Adam, Ivan, Amy, Craig, Henry, Tom, and all the rest. I'm having a beautiful time on THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE!
