Josh Schwartz, who at young age of 26 created the pilot for the series The O.C. that got picked up in 2003, just got another series pickup from Fox for Horrorstor, reports Deadline.

Horrorstor is dubbed a dramedy (a comedic drama) and the hour-long episodes will follow a young girl named Amy who, after celebrating her sobriety and working to get her life together, gets a job at a furniture store. All is well, until she finds out that the store has a supernatural element to it, selling customers products that prey on their desires and fantasies – sometimes in evil ways. The story is inspired by a supernatural mystery novel of the same name written by Grady Hendrix. Humorosly, the book is designed to look much like an IKEA store catalog. Hendrix will serve as a consultant on the project.

According to Deadline, Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind) introduced Berman to the book and its potential to be translated into a series.

Schwartz penned the script along with Black List screenwriter Michael Vukadinovich, and has reunited with Gail Berman, who’s production group, The Jackal Group, is a co-venture with Fox Networks Group. Berman was president of entertainment at Fox at the time The O.C. was picked up, so had a large part in that decision.

The Jackal Group and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire will produce, while ABC Studios (parent to Fake Empire) will be the  studio. Schwartz, Berman, Savage, and Kaufman will all executive produce along with David Borgenicht, CEO of Quirk Books, which published the Horrorstor book.

Schwartz, now 39, hasn’t been standing still since The O.C. went off the air in 2007. He has since written scripts that turned into two massively popular shows: Gossip Girl on the CW and Chuck on NBC. But it’s The O.C., a teen drama, that catapulted him to success, making him one of the youngest people ever to create a network series and run its production on a day-to-day basis.

Where to watch all the John Wick movies
Keanu Reeves in John Wick.

With John Wick: Chapter 4 out now and receiving rapturous praise from critics and audiences alike, there is one question that many are now asking: what is the greatest action film of the 21st century? Mad Max, Skyfall, The Raid, The Dark Knight, and Mission Impossible: Fallout all have compelling cases. However, compiling the best action films of the last 23 years and not mentioning John Wick is a crime against humanity. Arguments could be made for all three John Wick movies; that's how strong they are in the action genre.

John Wick started with a simple premise. Wick (The Matrix's Keanu Reeves, who is no stranger to action), a former hitman, returns to the criminal world he left behind after the arrogant son of a Russian mobster kills his dog, a gift from his deceased wife. Hellbent on revenge, Wick hunts down the son with reckless abandon, killing every single person who stands in his way. John Wick was a sleeper hit in 2014, and 9 years later, the story about a legendary hitman mourning the loss of his wife and dog is a global franchise. The fourth film, John Wick: Chapter 4, just earned the highest opening weekend gross of the franchise.
