Rockville, CA was a musical drama series that aired on The WB network in 2009. Created by Josh Schwartz, the show followed the lives of a group of young musicians hoping to make it big in the California music scene. The series was set in the small town of Rockville, a fictional coastal community located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Its main characters were aspiring musicians struggling to gain recognition in the highly competitive industry.

The show was directed by Steve Rash, and the main cast members included Alexandra Chando, Bonnie Burroughs, Matt Cohen, and Ryan Hansen.

Chando played the lead role of Deb, a talented singer-songwriter who moved to Rockville from New York with dreams of making it as a musician. Burroughs played the role of Tracy, Deb's best friend and confidante. Cohen played the role of T.K., Deb's guitarist and romantic interest, while Hansen played the role of Ben, the frontman of a rival band.

The show was known for its edgy and realistic portrayal of the music industry. It explored the harsh realities of what it takes to make it as a musician, including the pressures to conform to mainstream taste, the struggle to maintain artistic integrity, and the intensity of the competition.

The plot of the show revolved around the various conflicts and challenges faced by the characters as they tried to navigate their way through the music scene. It dealt with themes such as friendship, romance, betrayal, and the importance of staying true to oneself.

The characters were all well-rounded and believable, and the performances of the actors were praised by critics. The show had a great soundtrack, featuring original music by the cast and guest performances by established musicians such as Franz Ferdinand and The Kooks.

Overall, Rockville, CA was a unique and engaging series that provided an authentic glimpse into the world of aspiring musicians. It was cancelled after only one season due to low ratings, but it has since gained a small cult following among music and drama enthusiasts.
