Josh Schwartz has recruited his former The O.C. starlet Rachel Bilson to headline his new NBC hour-long drama Ghost Angeles. According to Deadline, the show will revolve around a young woman living in Los Angeles who can talk to the dead.

Josh Schwartz co-created the series with Ugly Betty's Henry Alonso Myers, and they will write the pilot together. Which has a production commitment from NBC. The deal is rare, as most networks do not pick-up projects that have yet to be written.

The show will be produced as part of Josh Schwartz's recently launched Fake Empire, which has also sold an untitled ensemble drama about young people living in Washington D.C., which comes from writer Will Fetters and is set up at ABC.

Ghost Angeles will be Josh Schwartz's first hour-long project that he's created in four years, since he sold Chuck to NBC and Gossip Girl to the CW in 2006.
