Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage created ‘The O.C.' and 'Gossip Girl’--some of the most defining young adult shows of the 2000’s. As they continue to make shows about young-adult angst, they also confront the passage of time. They’re now working with actors weren't even born when the duo's earlier shows first premiered. Savage and Schwartz tell us about their new series, ‘Looking for Alaska,’ a coming of age story set in the ancient days of 2005. They first dreamed of a film adaptation of John Green’s novel of the same name 14 years ago. They tell us how they finally managed to turn it into a limited series on Hulu.
