GOSSIP GIRL and THE O.C. creator Josh Schwartz turns his hand to another glitzy coming-of-age story with this adaptation of Jay McInerney's book. In BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY, a Midwest-born magazine editor becomes entrenched in the grit and glamour of New York City. The novel was previously made into a 1988 film starring Michael J. Fox and Kiefer Sutherland.
