"MSCL" Producers Go Online with New Series

"MSCL" Producers Go Online with New Series

What if Angela Chase were a 20-something video blogger? She might look a lot like Dylan, the main character of "Quarterlife," a new online TV series from "My So-Called Life" producers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the quarterlife crisis generation. "A sad truth about my generation is that we were all geniuses in high school," Dylan says in one voiceover, "but apparently the people who deal with us never got our transcripts."

"Quarterlife," which consists of 36 eight-minute episodes that will premiere Nov. 11 on MySpace, has an interesting history. It was produced three years ago as a pilot for ABC, but the network passed on the show. The producers ultimately decided to put the show online, and they're also launching a social networking site for creative 20-somethings.

Twentysomethings are the one age group we haven't really seen Herskovitz and Zwick take on, not counting the short-lived "Relativity," and as a 20-something myself, I want to see how well they reflect the hopes and neuroses of my friends and me. But I'm also nervous that they're going to miss the mark, in the same way I worry that if I were to watch "My So-Called Life" now, it would sound more navel-gazey than insightful. I also think it's a little risky to launch a show about a video blogger on a social network full of them, especially when the trailer includes the angsty line "Why do we blog? We blog to exist."

Nonetheless, Nov. 11 is now marked on my calendar. To check out the trailer and let me know what you think, just
