Barton Lands TV Comeback

Apr 27, 2009 | 4:28am EDT

Former O.C. star Mischa Barton is heading back to TV in a new fashion-based show alongside Ashton Kutcher.

Barton quit the teen drama in 2006 to pursue a movie career, but will now go back to her roots on the small screen in A Beautiful Life -- a satire based on the fashion industry.

The 23-year-old plays a New York-based model in the pilot episode, which also features a cameo appearance from supermodel Elle Macpherson.

Barton says, "It's a really great show. It's like The O.C. but times 10. Everyone is dressed in the latest Versace and McQueen. Zac Posen has a fashion show in the first episode and plays himself.

"It's a younger version of Sex and the City. I play a super bitchy model in New York. If the pilot does well I will be spending a lot more time in New York."

And Barton admits she loved the clothes so much, she took most of them home with her, adding, "I bought most of my wardrobe."
