Staff Reporter | On 04, Jan 2021
The OC is arriving on All 4 this month, completing the catch-up service’s collection of classic US teen dramas.
The VOD platform has been stepping up its acquisitions in the past year, with shows such as ER, Scrubs and The West Wing joining its catalogue. At the same time, it’s assembled a who’s who of teen series, including Dawson’s Creek, 90210, One Tree Hill and Freaks and Geeks. Now, it’s bringing another iconic teen show to the table, with all four seasons of The OC joining the pack.
The multiple award-winning show presents the lives of a group of friends and family whose lives have forever been changed by the arrival of an outsider to their affluent oceanside community of Newport Beach in Orange County, California. When Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie) was taken in from the streets of Chino by then public defender Sandy Cohen (Peter Gallagher) and his wife, Kirsten (Kelly Rowan), the Cohens had no idea how Ryan’s arrival would change their lives and the lives of those around them. Their son, Seth (Adam Brody), found a friend and brother in Ryan to share his quirky way of looking at the world – and the trials and tribulations of winning the heart of Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson), his lifelong crush. Meanwhile, Ryan has fallen in love with the beautiful girl next door, Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton). But their romance is ill-fated, and constantly tested by the young lovers’ inability to escape from their pasts.
Created by Josh Schwartz, the show also stars Melinda Clarke, Tate Donovan, Alan Dale, Chris Carmack, Autumn Reeser and Willa Holland. From Wonderland Sound and Vision, and College Hill Pictures in association with Warner Bros Television, the series was executive produced by Schwartz, McG, Bob DeLaurentis, Dave Bartis, Doug Liman and Stephanie Savage, and is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.
All four seasons arrive on All 4 on 22nd January.
The OC is available on All 4 until 18th January 2021.
