TVOM: "FOX had been known to deliver tantalizing storylines on popular nighttime soap operas like Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. When both of those series ended, the network was lacking in this genre, which is pretty much non-existent on primetime television today. Then in the summer of 2003 everything changed. A soap opera drama set in Orange County California debuted on the network in August of 2003 and gradually became one the hottest new series of the 2003-2004 television season. That show was The O.C., and it kick-started the careers of Adam Brody, Rachel Bilson, and Benjamin McKenzie. The drama would last for four glorious seasons and would come to a conclusion in February 2007. Here is a list of ten things that you may not know about The O.C. We hope some, if not all, of these facts will surprise you about this series created by Josh Schwartz."
