QUATERLIFE – A new show on MySpace…

Do you wish you could take your TV shows with you? Well now you can, meet QUARTERLIFE, a new online series from Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, creators of “My So-Called Life,” “thirtysomething,” “Legends of the Fall,” and “Blood Diamond,” about a group of twentysomethings coming of age in the digital generation, and a social network about what it means to be creative, to pursue a passion, to make a difference in the world — or just to find a place in it.

The show and everything that comes with it (blogs, MySpace profile, website, etc.) premieres November 11th on MySpaceTV and includes 36 episodes.

To be honest, I was a little apprehensive when I heard about it. Usually these types of things are never very good in quality. But Quarterlife is different. I looked at the trailer while asking myself, “Would I watch this on TV?” The answer is yes, I would. I don’t know if I would give it a full season pass yet, but I definitely want to see the first episode. It doesn’t hurt either that our favorite Greekster Scott M. Foster (Cappie in Greek) has a part in the show.

Check out the trailer for Quarterlife below and tell me you are not a little bit excited about it.

I’ll be tuning in on November 11th to find out more about Quarterlife, will you?

More Info: The “quarterlife” series tells the ongoing stories of six creative people in their twenties. As with Herskovitz’s and Zwick’s previous television projects, the team’s commitment to realism is at the center of “quarterlife” as is the recognition of universal human themes through the truthful depiction of the way young people speak, work, think, love, argue, and express themselves. The central character is Dylan, a young woman whose overly truthful video blog spills the closest secrets of her friends, and the show’s characters – filmmakers Danny and Jed, actress-bartender Lisa, geek-extraordinaire Andy, and still-tied-to-her-parents Debra – chart the sometimes excruciating, sometimes comic, often emotional experiences that comprise coming of age as a part of the digital generation.

As the exclusive international distribution partner, MySpaceTV will create a “quarterlife” video channel and MySpace profile page to spotlight exclusive series content including character profiles, behind-the-scenes video footage, and storyline secrets for the MySpace community. MySpaceTV will have the exclusive global rights to premiere 36, 8-minute original episodes of “quarterlife.” Starting today, the “quarterlife” trailer can be viewed at www.myspacetv.com.

Herskovitz and Zwick have also created a dedicated social network – quarterlife.com – to exist alongside their Internet series. Quarterlife.com will be devoted to facilitating that same coming of age as the series. For many people in this demographic the Internet is a critical part of life; they also define themselves, more than any generation in history, by their creativity. A key part of quarterlife is the interaction between the show and the website. Members of the quarterlife community will be invited to participate in the ongoing creation of the series through writing and video submissions.
