Schwartz says that even though the shows setting might seem alien to non-Californians, they can still relate because the more specific you are in your storytelling, the more universal those stories become.
Plus, he adds, Everybody [in California] is just so damn good-looking.
Schwartz, who hails from Providence, Rhode Island, doesnt want to imply that people in his home state are unsightly but says the state of California has a mythic quality that appeals to people all over the world.
A DVD collection of The O.C., Season 2, arrives in stores Aug. 23.
