The New Kids On the Block With Stephanie Savage
Play • 1 hr 34 min

Rachel and Melinda are joined, once again, by Stephanie Savage, The Executive Producer and Writer on The OC, to discuss, "The New Kids On the Block" (S2 Ep 3).

Stephanie reveals the reason behind the creation of The Bait Shop and why the Cohen's house was under construction. They also dive into the purpose behind bringing Zach, Alex, Lindsay, and DJ onto The OC, and how they develop the storyline.

Listen in to hear all three ladies gush about the male cast this season, and the "scruff" that makes them irresistible.

Seth says everything we wish we could say as teenagers, and teaches us the most important lesson of all- that life is about learning from our mistakes. Stephanie sets the record straight, describing The OC as a celebration, but also a critique, of affluence. Our favorite show was designed to make a place for everyone, and to feel like home, for everyone who watches.

Listen to the end to hear our fan voicemails, and Stephanie's favorite episode.

The synopsis for this episode: Seth is on a quest for selflessness to win Summer’s friendship. He gets a job working for Alex at the music venue The Bait Shop so that he could get tickets for The Walkmen, to give to Summer and Zach. New student Lindsay and Ryan start off on the wrong foot, and when they’re assigned as lab partners, they’re both convinced they can’t work together. Caleb assigns Julie as the new CEO of the Newport Group, shocking Kirsten and Sandy.
